Pulling down the notification shade on my Moto G3 smartphone running Nougat provided access to the Quick Settings menu as expected – but – there was no Location icon! Sure, I could open Settings, scroll down to Location, and turn this feature on, but using the Quick Settings’ icon would be much more convenient.
Fortunately, Paul Thurrott, who I always thought of as a Windows guru, also knows how to fix Android issues. The trick in this case is to pull down the Quick Settings menu shade and tap the pencil (Edit) icon at the top of the screen. The Location icon was in the lower portion of the screen in a section labelled “Drag to add tiles.” So, all I had to do, was to drag the Location item to the empty spot on the shade and world order was once again restored!
