How to Set a Default Location With Google Maps? [Solved]

Follow these directions from the Google Map Support center.

Set or change your home and work address

That's about it, except the Quora Gods want me to "Provide more explanation why the answer is correct." Apparently, We should "Add a bio that shows experience or expertise in the topic." because obviously, a link coming directly from the Google Support Center is insufficient. And to wrap things up, it would be helpful if we "Include links to relevant sources." which we was sure we had, but perhaps in doing so we made some unforeseen errors because they made specific reference to "Using correct spelling and grammar and clear formatting." Ah well, it seems the problem has corrected itself, so good luck.

Another way to set a default location with Google Maps?

We didn't really know the answer so I went to the "INTERNET" and found the following:
When you first load Google Maps you will see a link called "Set default location" click it, enter "your city name" and hit "Save". Next time you load the page you should see the bounds of your city and search results are preferred within a given viewport. Hint: You must login using a Google account.
