Clicked the 'mylocation' icon in Google maps, how do I turn it off?

I accidentally clicked the target shaped icon for using my location on Google maps, and they only have information on how to turn it off in Chrome. Because I'm at a desktop, hardwired to the internet, it does me no good to show my location as Indianapolis when I'm in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago. If nothing else, I can uninstall and re-install...

Thanks, Jim
