How Do I Make the Weather App to Display Temperature in My Local Regional Settings (Switch from Fahrenheit to Celsius)

    Question

  • Hello,

    Is it possible for Weather app to display temperature in Celsius degree? I set my Regional settings and location to my current location (Russia), however, the app still displays Fahrenheit. Of course there's no big deal to do a simple math and calculate 1.8*c + 32 but it would be handy...

    Thank you.

  • Within the Weather app, move your mouse to the bottom left and a little charms menu would appear. Click "Settings" charm (that's what they call it Charms of windows 8), a setting pan would dock at the right side of the screen. If you are using touch screen, then the charms menu require gesture: from the extreme-right of the screen swipe your finger to the left a little and the charm menu would popped out. Hope this helps!


    Edit

    If you are using a keyboard, you can try this combination: WindowKey + C to open the charms menu.

    "Open the Weather app and then move your cursor to the bottom left of the

    background animation."

    When I move the cursor to the bottom left, I get the Start button popped up. If I righ-click within the Weather app, there are no buttons like Weather preferences on the bottom panel (how do you call it here, in Metro?).

    You need to reread what I posted. When you move your cursor to the bottom
    left, you also get an option labeled Settings. Click that.

    That's okay with my reading, if I am being correct here. Although English isn't my native language and I've never been to the US, I am pretty confident that I clearly understand what is the "bottom left" here.

    What I think now is that I would rather need to press WindowsKey + C to display Windows charms like described by Paul Thurrott.
