Question from Micha V.: I love the “Weather” app in Windows 10 but I seem to have messed it up somehow.
For some reason it’s started showing the current temperature in Celsius instead of Fahrenheit.
I must be an idiot. How can I get it switched back to Fahrenheit?
Rick’s answer: Hi Micha. It’s very easy to accidentally switch the temperature scale from Fahrenheit to Celsius, and vice versa. (In other words, you aren’t an idiot. If you were, plenty of other folks would be right there with you, myself included.)
Luckily, it’s quite easy to change it back. Here’s how:
1 – Open the Weather app.
2 – Click the “gear” shaped Settings icon in the lower left-hand corner of the window.
3 – Find the “Show temperature in:” section and select Fahrenheit.
That’s all there is to it. Your “Weather” app should now be displaying the current temperature in Fahrenheit instead of Celsius.
By the way, the default Windows 10 Weather app isn’t the only weather app out there that will work with Windows 10. In fact, there are several of them in the Windows App Store.
I recommend that you try a few of the alternative apps. A couple of them are pretty awesome! Just click the Store tile on the Start Menu and search for weather.
I hope this helps, Micha. Good luck!
Update from Micha: Thanks for your help Rick. I got it changed back to Fahrenheit and all is well. I’ll definitely check out some of the other weather apps when I manage to get a little free time. Thanks again!
