My weather app keeps telling me the conditions & forecast for Helena, Montana. I am sure it is a wonderful place, and I am thrilled to know it is now 32 degrees F outside, however I live in New Jersey. I cannot find a "change location" function in its settings. Where does the weather app get its location info from, and how can I correct it? Thanks!

Right-click and setting should show up on the top. Click on places and add the new location.

I couldn't get the weather app working for me. it just says that it cant connect to internet. so I got Accuweather and Elements Weather Forecast from the store and both work fine for me...

once you add your correct location, you can also make it the default location and delete the previous default location. mine was off as well (though, only by about 20 miles).

Welcome to EightForums, sudhirkankal.

I'm on my phone, so I can't see. Right or left click empty space in app. My locations should appear.
