How to change personal location to shared location:
I have made mistakes when selecting the icon on the map. Just want to clean up My Locations page.
The editing icon will not do it.
Thanks for any help you can offer.

I have two questions.
Which editing icon are you referring to?
Are you trying to merge your Personal locations with Hotspots?

Manage My Locations: http://help.ebird.org/customer/portal/articles/1882374
has multiple sections depending on what you want to do.

I'm talking about the Manage My Locations page on My Ebird. The P or S designation. Perhaps I'm not clear on what a personal location is and same for the shared location. I did read the articles but still don't get the difference. Is my personal location where I live? The shared locations when I am out and about? Or are the personal location just places I go on my own?

A Personal location is one that only you can use to post checklists to.
A Shared location is one that is used or can be used by multiple birders to post checklists to. A Hotspot is one example of a Shared location.
Here is another article explaining how to merge Personal locations with Hotspots;
