Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.java

<? xml version= "1.0" encoding= "utf-8" ?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns: android = "http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns: tools = "http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android :layout_width= "match_parent"
   android :layout_height= "match_parent"
   android :layout_margin= "16dp"
   tools :context= ".MainActivity" >
   <Button
      android :id= "@+id/button"
      android :layout_width= "match_parent"
      android :layout_height= "wrap_content"
      android :text= "Enable Location" />
</RelativeLayout>

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

package app.tutorialspoint.com.sample ;
import android.content.Context ;
import android.content.DialogInterface ;
import android.content.Intent ;
import android.location.LocationManager ;
import android.os.Bundle ;
import android.provider.Settings ;
import android.support.v7.app.AlertDialog ;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity ;
import android.view.View ;
import android.widget.Button ;
import android.widget.TextView ;
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   @Override
   protected void onCreate (Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super .onCreate(savedInstanceState) ;
      setContentView(R.layout. activity_main ) ;
      Button button = findViewById(R.id. button ) ;
      button.setOnClickListener( new View.OnClickListener() {
         @Override
         public void onClick (View v) {
            locationEnabled() ;
         }
      }) ;
   }
   private void locationEnabled () {
      LocationManager lm = (LocationManager)
      getSystemService(Context. LOCATION_SERVICE ) ;
      boolean gps_enabled = false;
      boolean network_enabled = false;
      try {
         gps_enabled = lm.isProviderEnabled(LocationManager. GPS_PROVIDER ) ;
      } catch (Exception e) {
         e.printStackTrace() ;
      }
      try {
         network_enabled = lm.isProviderEnabled(LocationManager. NETWORK_PROVIDER ) ;
      } catch (Exception e) {
         e.printStackTrace() ;
      }
      if (!gps_enabled && !network_enabled) {
         new AlertDialog.Builder(MainActivity. this )
         .setMessage( "GPS Enable" )
         .setPositiveButton( "Settings" , new
         DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick (DialogInterface paramDialogInterface , int paramInt) {
               startActivity( new Intent(Settings. ACTION_LOCATION_SOURCE_SETTINGS )) ;
            }
         })
         .setNegativeButton( "Cancel" , null )
         .show() ;
      }
   }
}

Step 4 − Add the following code to androidManifest.xml

<? xml version= "1.0" encoding= "utf-8" ?>
<manifest xmlns: android = "http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   package= "app.tutorialspoint.com.sample" >
   <uses-permission android :name= "android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
   <uses-permission android :name= "android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
   <application
      android :allowBackup= "true"
      android :icon= "@mipmap/ic_launcher"
      android :label= "@string/app_name"
      android :roundIcon= "@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"
      android :supportsRtl= "true"
      android :theme= "@style/AppTheme" >
      <activity android :name= ".MainActivity" >
         <intent-filter>
            <action android :name= "android.intent.action.MAIN" />
            <category android :name= "android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
         </intent-filter>
      </activity>
   </application>
</manifest>

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer. To run the app from android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click Run  icon from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen –
