How can I set home position on desktop version?

When planning a route I get what I think is a home shape but it is well away from my true position.
Since I'm using a desktop it doesn't have GPS so I suppose it's working back from my internet provider's nearest box.
How can I persuade it to be at my real location?
Thanks in advance
David

    Home position can be set up on the device.

    MyDrive web is for planning routes, sending destinations, POI's back ups.

    Thanks YamFazMan, that really helped.
    I'm using Chrome under Windows 10 and although I have manually set the Windows location Chrome was reporting some other location to Mydrive.
    Using you excellent reply I cleared the location permission for Mydrive, forcing it to ask again.
    I installed a free Chrome extension called "Location Guard", which either moves the position reported by Chrome randomly OR reports a fixed position and It can do different things for different sites.
    So I now have Mydrive using a fixed position where I actually live and an unexpected bonus that other sites get close enough to be relevant but not close enough to infringe my privacy.

    Thanks again for a way in to solve this.
