For Seniors: Get the Weather App on Your Windows Laptop

The Weather app allows you to set one or more cities for quick access to local weather information. This includes information on wind, visibility, humidity, and barometer readings. You get this information from several services such as Bing Weather, AccuWeather, and Foreca.

4Right-click to display the tools.

You can use the Change Home button on the bottom left to set the current location as your Weather home page. On the bottom right, tools allow you to display weather for your current location (if you’re connected to the Internet so the Weather app can find you), or change readings to Celsius.

5The buttons on the top allow you to add and display other locations for weather, display weather at locations around the globe, or return to your default location at the Weather Home page.

To switch between locations, right-click the Weather screen, click Places, and then click another saved location on the page that appears.
