    Is there any way to turn off clouds in weather application? They are slowing my pc down significantly.

    disable the app and look out the window
    ,i have to say although the weather screen is nice with a sunny beach and lapping waves for my location, a full screen view is unnecessary

    I want to use it as forecast.

    This is what i want to disable - full screen weather, since it slows down computer.

    Don't think you can disable the animations in it, but you can snap it to the side of the screen, which makes it smaller.

    When it's open on full screen, drag your mouse all the way to the left of the screen edge until the little preview window shows - right click - snap weather.

    I cannot do this, because snap does not support 4:3 displays and I can only use this with 1024x768, which is 4:3 resolution.
