When selecting a location, how to save as DEFAULT.
When creating a new VM, I have to choose my location each time - eg. I choose 'South-East Australia' everytime.
It would be good to have this as a "Portal Setting"
Agree. Default region is a bonus.
This is so annoying I really want to go back to AWS.

We need this setting, so annoying when you forget to change the region. We aren't all located in Central US remember.

During my training, I messed up because I accidentally created something in UK West when everything else was in UK South. I am surprised a default location is not already a feature.
Mike Ross commented
Given that we mainly use UK south, this would be a really useful option for us as well. It would save a load of time hunting for the right location in a list that is not even alphabetically sorted.
Steve Chester commented
It would be great to have this functionality for all services not just VMs

How is this NOT FIXED YET???

I just tried to move my resource group to EU from the poor default Central US .. i was so happy .. then i realized none of the resources follow .. hilariously pathetic, useless and pointless feature.
Mustafa Kaplan commented
it shouldn't be so hard. Please allow us to set a default location per subscription
Raju Joseph commented
For example, I create a new App Function and select an existing Resource Group. The region should default to the region associated with the resource group to avoid confusion.
Amer jamaeen commented
Allow user to set default region instead of selecting the same region every time.
Maybe this would make more sense on a subscription level. The portal can handle multiple subscriptions and maybe they differ in location...
It would be awesome if we can adjust our default region for resources allocation regardless our linked account region settings or where our subscription is issued.

And not just for VMs - I'd like to be able to set the default location for all resources created within our tenant to one region, to prevent anything being created in our tenant outside that specified region (especially as you can't easily change regions once a resource has been created)

Agreed - I'm tired of stuff being deployed to Brazil - no offence but it's on the far corner of the Atlantic from North Europe :)

Default location for resources (I'm tired of being shoved into east asia)

I want to be able to work in the Portal against a specific region. It would be good if there is flexibility in terms of filtering based on subscription, region and resource groups. Also MS can think about providing capability to have sub-resource groups within a resource group.
Gabo Gilabert commented
It would be good to be able to setup the default region in the portal, I already lost a lot of time creating resources in Northern Europe :(

There are certain defaults in the creation journeys like time zones, domain join, create new storage account, network connection etc. It would be nice to configure a different set of defaults for a subscription or resource group
