Add More Locations to Windows 10 Weather App

Open the Weather app and click the hamburger menu on the upper left-side of the screen. Then select Places.


Then under Favorit Places on the right, click the “+” tile. Then you can search for a zip code or the city you want to add.

enter location

Your Launch Location will always be what shows up when you first launch the app. Then, to see the other places you’ve added select Places to bring them up and then choose the tile you need.

Other Places

If you go into Settings (gear icon in the lower-left corner), under Launch Location either select a default that you specify or Always detect my location — which is good when you’re traveling. Of course, for it to work you’ll need to allow Windows to access your location.

The other neat thing is the Weather app is a Universal App. So, the locations you add on your Windows 10 PC will sync to any device the MSN Weather app installed on. That currently includes Android, Kindle Fire, and, of course, Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile.

It’s also worth noting that you can always do a search for any location via the search box at the upper right corner of the app.

    Thank you.

    For some reason all the cities in weather except my location are gone. I am looking at instructions to add cities. If I click the star button they do not appear. Other directions say to click on the “hamburger menu… there is not one.
