How to Make the Weather Tile Display Temperature in Celsius


While some people prefer to have their temperatures displayed in Fahrenheit, there are a lot of us that would rather have it displayed in Celsius, here’s how you can make the change to the Windows 8 Weather Tile.

How to Make the Weather Tile Display Temperature in Celsius

Switch to the Start Screen, and launch the Weather app.


Now right click or tap anywhere on the screen, if you look in the lower right hand corner of the screen you will see a Change to Celsius button, click on it.


You should then see it update the the current temperature.


If you close the app, or switch over to the start screen you will see that the temperature has been updated as well.


That’s all there is to it.

    OK, how do I delete the example location. I don’t live anywhere near London England. I was able to delete it on the Admin ID, but not on my user ids. Worse, it almost always seems to default to this bogus location….

    Why Celsius?

    I’m still trying to figure out how to change Celsius to Fahrenheit in XBMC!

    Why does Microsoft make it so darn hard to change something so basic that you can almost calculate in your head? (I know. XBMC isn’t a Microsoft maintained thing. But where do you think it came from?!)

    As India uses Celsius MS automatically give it in celsius,
    Great job MS
