Here's How You Find Out The Address of Any Location on Google Maps

By Jon Partridge on at

Usually with Google Maps you know what you're typing out into the search field, but occasionally there are some times when you've been idly browsing around the map and you want to find out the real location of somewhere you've found. Luckily, Google have implemented a nifty little trick for you.

Simply right-click on the map at any location you want the address to be, and tap on the "What's here?" menu prompt. For accurate results, make sure you're zoomed in all the way and it also seems to help if you're in satellite view too. After clicking "What's here?", Google will give you the address of the location requested, alongside latitude and longitude (just in case you need that info!) [Lifehacker -- Thanks, Darrell!]
