    2 questions: right state, wrong city

    1: the weather tile shows the weather for a city 50 miles from me. how do I change the city on that to my city. now I did buy the book "windows 8 for dummies" and have been looking for the answer there but not found it.

    2: after getting this new computer I thought I would have to pay $100.00 to have the geek squad transfer my old files to my new computer. but in the back of this book it says I can do it myself using something called an :easy transfer usb cable: so I ordered one for $14.00 from best buy. it was not in stock but should take 10 days to get here.
    my question is, when transferring the files from the XP computer to the 8 computer, will I need to have a computer
    screen on both computers?

    1) Open the weather tile and right click anywhere and select Places. You can add additional sites and make one the Home site. The Home site is the one that displays by default.

    2) Not sure how that works. Have not used that scenario in 20 years.
