Hello all, I am very new to ArcGIS. My organization setup is set to show the world's map. I need to change it to the US. After that I need to display Alaska and Hawaii close to the continental USA.

Brief background: I managed to download the US counties map from the living atlas and joined it with my own data to it to show counties that ranked in the top and bottom quartile of a certain scale. Now that I have the map, I need to create a layout to add it to a power point presentation. 

I have searched for hours online but cannot find a solution to this simple problem - probably because it is too elementary. Thank you in advance for your help.

If this is just a one-off, just tweak the layout. If you're looking to permanently change the default extent, you'll need to adjust the organization settings.

Go to your-portal-url/home/organization.html?tab=map#settings.

In the map defaults section, you can change the default extent. Once changed, any newly-created map in the web or in Pro will open on that extent.
