How to download and use Maps offline on Windows 11
As described above, Maps can be downloaded offline and used on the road without dependable Internet access.
Below is how to do that in Windows 11.
Windows 11 has a centralized location for the majority of its settings. As a result, everything can be done, from system configurations to creating new users and updating Windows from its System Settings pane.
To get to System Settings, you can use the Windows key + I shortcut or click on Start ==> Settings, as shown in the image below:
Alternatively, you can use the search box on the taskbar and search for Settings. Then select to open it.
Windows Settings pane should look similar to the image below. In the Windows Settings app, click Apps on the left.
On the right, click on the Offline maps tile to expand.
Click the Download maps button on the Settings -> Apps -> Offline maps settings pane.
On the Settings -> Offline maps -> Download maps settings pane, select the continent on which you want to download maps.
On the expanded tile, click the Download button of the country. Other locations will have regions; in that case, click the Choose region button.
Click the download button (down-arrow) on the pop-up window to download the map offline.
Once the region maps have been downloaded, go back to the Settings app -> Apps -> Offline maps -> Maps (x downloaded) to view the recently downloaded maps.
After the map is downloaded, go and install the Windows Maps app from the Microsoft Store and use it to navigate offline.
That should do it!
