Question from Freida G.: I need your help Rick. I read your article explaining how to uninstall unwanted apps in Windows 8 and I decided to delete a few of them to tidy up my Start Screen.
While removing the apps that I figured I’d never use, I accidentally deleted the Weather app – which I love! How can I get it back?
I love your site by the way. Your tips have helped me so much!!! Thank you!!!
Ricks’s answer: You’re very welcome Freida. I’m glad you find my tips useful.
To answer your question, you can easily re-install any pre-installed Windows 8 app that has been removed right from the Windows Store. Here’s how to re-install your Weather app:
1 – On the Start Screen, click on the Store tile.
2 – Type Weather into the search box.
3 – Select weather from the list of search results. Several “weather” apps will be displayed on the screen.
4 – Select the app that’s simply labeled Weather. That’s the one that came pre-installed along with Windows 8.
5 – Click the Install button.
That’s all there is to it Freida! Good luck!
