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 click on Favorites from the menu. Then on the righthand side, click on the Add Favorites button.


Under the “Add to Favorites” field, search for a zipcode 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 Favorite Places to bring them up, and then choose the tile you need.

Other Places

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

Cross-Platform Universal App

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.

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

    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.
