    how to set location / city in weather app via registry?

    We are deploying several hundred win 8.1 enterprise tablets and I'd like to set the default location to our local city when users first sign in.
    I can't find any information on the internet about how to do this programmaticly or via the registry (or even better via group policy)

    Anyone attempted to this or at least know where the weather app location / city data is stored in the registry or in an ini file or something somewhere that I can modify via a script?

    I don't know where it is. But generally to detect a setting location in the registry you can run Regshot free utility before and after changing the setting.
