How to Change the Weather Location on News and Interests Widget

The News and Interests app on Windows 10 includes a Weather card. Here’s how to change the weather forecast location.

Microsoft recently announced that its News and Interests widget is coming to the taskbar of all Windows 10 users. The rollout will be gradual via Windows Update and users will see it in the coming months.

By default, the weather information will be gathered from the location data Windows 10 gets. So, if you’re not on a VPN like PIA, you should see the weather for your location. However, you might be on a VPN or just want to see the weather conditions for another region. Here’s how to change it.

Change Weather Location on News and Interests on Windows 10

To get started, launch the News and Interests widget from the taskbar by hovering over the button or clicking on it.
