How can I get my Weather live tile working?

Question: How can I get my Weather live tile working?

Hello,
Ever since updating my computer from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 I have had trouble with the MSN Weather live tile, which has been blank (In Win 8.1 it worked fine). I remember that directly after updating to Win10, only the medium weather live tile was working for about half an hour and then just died.
The recent update from the stock Windows 10 build to the November update (10586)hasn't changed anything...
All the other apps' live tiles, except MSN weather's live tile are working. I have also tried installing other weather apps (like Weather Channel, Accuweather, Vieather etc..) and all their live tiles, except Weather Channel's, work fine.
I have tried all the solutions, that can be found on forums, like trying to resync the store licenses, running the app trouble shooter, trying the sfc/scannow, which hasn't detected any problems with the computer, uninstalling and reinstalling the weather app, unpinning and pinning again, turning live tile off and on again, changing from Fahrenheit to Celsius, restarting the PC etc etc... nothing worked.
When I open a new user account in my computer, the weather live tile in that account works fine. But not on my original admin account.
Has anyone figured out a solution or some way to discover the root of the problem? Might there be a way to let's say easily find some potential incompatible app, that could be blocking the weather live tile or something?
Thank you all for your help,
Jan

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hello Guys,

I have just installed the Threshold 2 update but still my Weather live tile is not working, it worked for a few days after I upgraded from Windows 8 to 10 but ever since then it's not worked, I was hoping this big update was going to fix this.

Is anyone else still having problems with the live tile, is there a way I can reinstall the weather app?

Thanks

Tony

Answer:Weather App Live Tile Still not working

Hi tonymarcus, I have the same problem. The weather app would open to nothing for a flash and then disappear. What I just tried is to remove the app using powershell and then go to the store and reinstall it. It is called MSN weather. I then pinned it to start. It seems to work right now. I'll report back in about 11 hours when I get up in the morning. For me the weather app has always had problems after it is unused for a while. The RTM build one would open, but be stuck on yesterday until I closed and reopened it. The modern apps are sill a work in progress. From the tutorial forum https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4...dows-10-a.html . Powershell is option 2.

I can't seem to get the Weather app's live tile to update. Basically it doesn't show anything but the app is working properly once I access it.
I tried everything: syncing permissions in Store settings, removing and re adding the app, toggling live tile on/off. Nothing solves the issue.
Any ideas why this happens and how to fix it?
PS It's the only app not working properly. I updated from Windows 8 to 8.1 yesterday via the Store.

I recently upgraded to 8.1 (actually, made a clean install), and everything seems to be working as designed. Except, on the Start Screen, although all the other apps show live tiles, the Weather app does not, showing only a plain blue background with the word "Weather" on it. The live tile feature is definitely turned on for this app.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Is there a fix for it?

I can't seem to turn on live tile for my weather app. When I right click on it, there is no option at the bottom of the screen to turn it on.

Compared to the photos app, it is currently running live tile by default, and when I right click on it, I can toggle live tile on and off.

Is there something special I need to do with the weather app to activate live tile?

Answer:Cannot turn on live tile for weather app

Hello Pauleduc,

Double check to make sure that the Windows Time service is enabled, and that your system time is set accurately and synced.

You could also do this by opening an elevated command prompt, then typing the commands below and press Enter after each one.
net start w32time

w32tm /resync

Afterwards, see if you have the "Turn live tile on/off" option.

Does anyone know if there's a weather app that has the option to pin a live tile of the precipitation meteogram? Ideally it should update the graph and track the location automatically in the background. Been looking for one for quite some time now.
P.S. There are a number of good weather apps that have precipitation meteograms (Appy Weather, Forecast, Weather To-Go, WeatherView, Amazing Weather HD, etc...), but there is no option to pin the precipitation meteogram to the live tile.
P.P.S. There are two weather apps (Skyline, WeatherSpark) that pins the temperature meteogram to the live tile, but NOT the precipitation meteogram.

Hello. I am using Windows 10 Professional edition. Following some random Windows Update a few months ago, my default Windows 10 weather app (the one that can be pinned to the start menu) displays the temperature properly and updates regularly, however, if I click to open it, it opens blank....basically, the window is just the blue background with the little icon of the sun in the center.

This app used to work 100% before.

Lastly, I remember my calendar app not opening at all when Windows 10 was fresh. It would immediately close upon opening the calendar app. However, following some random Windows Update, the calendar app started working properly.

I "upgraded" to Windows 10 from 8.1, but I did a FULL install and chose to "save nothing" from 8.1, so it is about as legit as it can get to being a full installation and not an upgrade.

PS, it doesn't seem to matter if I enable to disable background data for the Weather app in privacy settings. I have tried it out both ways, and either way, on or off, the live tile for the weather app still updates, but opens blank and won't show me the large view when I click on it.

Is anyone else experiencing this issue? I don't use any other apps, I have not downloaded any other apps from the app store, and I have deleted some of the apps that came with Windows 10. I prefer to use my web browser for most things. I'm old school!

Recently, for some unknown reason, the live tile of the Microsoft Weather application started to mess up. Most of the times, it was just showing the application icon, then sometimes it did really show the weather, but the content of the tile was strangely skewed. My tile is 2x2, but it seemed that the content of the Weather live tile was trying to fit into 2x1 tile, sometimes into 4x2 (or larger) tile (so I wasn't able to see all the information).
Around the same time, Facebook application started to crash pretty much on everything. Opening a profile page, opening comments on a post, opening the notifications, and so on.
Lumia Camera seems to be working well, but I wasn't able to see the photos I made. All I see is a gray thumbnail in Gallery, and a black nothing when I tap on it.
Also, I wasn't able to see any pictures on OneDrive. It took hours to load (all other folders were showing properly).
So, I tried restarting the phone. Several times. Still having the same issues.
I tried to uninstall Facebook and Weather, but when I try to install them again, I get the error "There was a problem" (which apparently explains a lot!) and an error code 82ad0002.

I updated windows 8.1 pro with wmc from store.

I had NO problems, received no error messages, had no dc's, the power didn't shut off, the download didn't stop .. literally nothing went wrong. After update everything worked fine. All the apps are downloaded and were working fine.

But,

After 2/3 months since updated, I suddenly noticed that every live tile / folder / app / game / setting etc. which were working fine, now not working.
When I clicked on any tile, nothing happened. It just went to a blank green screen because my background color is green. It appears on the left upper corner as opened but doesn't run. When I click, I am send back to Start Screen or Desktop. Even Store and Windows Setting stopped working. So, naturally i started checking the web for answers, but couldn't find a solution to the exact problem i was having. I saw countless posts of people saying "Just uninstall / re-install the apps" but at first, I couldn't get my App store app to run. Again, it was just blank after several minutes of waiting.

I finally decided to install Yahoo Mail because I needed the live tile for that account. But that live tile was not working either. I had people send me emails, and nothing. They sent to Yahoo and to Hotmail. Then after about 4 hours, all of a sudden I started getting the live tiles updating. I have no idea why.

I removed Yahoo Mail, and still the live tile worked for mail. I waited until the next morning to verify it was all good and it is still working.

So marking as solved. Not sure what solved it, but there you go.

Of the hundred of photos in the My Pictures folder it shows just 4 poor ones on a loop.

Question: Facebook Live Tile

The (new/UWP but not really) Facebook app offered to pin a Live Tile for me one of the first times I opened it. I declined at that moment, figuring I would pin it manually later. However, pinning from the "All Apps" does not pin a Live Tile, but simply a static one. At the same time I can't find any shortcut in the app to pin a Live Tile like it offered before...
Anyone know how to get that actual Live Tile without the app offering it?

Question: Live photo tile

So I understand that the photo app gets my photos from my picture library and then just randomly scrolls through them, however there is a specific folder of photo that I don't want to be shown. Is there a way to make it so it doesn't show that folder when flicking through the various photo I have or do I have to move the folder to another location?

Answer:Live photo tile

Take it out of My Pictures (e.g., just put it in your C: User folder--top level--like My Pictures) and give it a non-picture related name (not sure if that's necessary). I have some snips that I don't want to see on my start screen, and that's what I do--use a folder named Snips.

hi ! are you new to site here : first you could try the old un pinning of the tile and go back into the app and turn all tile settings of and turning them back to your needs.. if that doesn't work try uninstalling the app and installing again (if you have paid for the app the store will remember and you won't be charged again) then turn phone of and on. If still no joy it will be a fault in the app and you will then have to wait for another update.

Hi,

Okay, I understand that Live Tile updates for third-party apps can and will vary. But when it comes to certain standard/system apps, I would expect to always see their Live Tile functionality in effect.

Both my Weather and Calendar apps are "stuck" on their Title tile. Twice this morning I have see the Weather app show my weather info, but then it goes back to the Title tile and gets stuck there; no more weather info.

I'm less bothered by the Calendar app, but I'm thinking tit should at least show today's date. Unlike the Weather app, it has never shown any data; only the Title tile.

I tried turning off Live Tile and then turning it back on for both, but still the same results.

Is there anything else I should be doing or is anyone else also encountering the same bug?

Thanks!

Hi there, I am using Windows 8.1 on my laptop. What am I gonna ask is about the native Photos app from Microsoft.
I have all my photos stored on the picture library (which is in the Picture folder on the document) but with sub-folders to organize my photos.
I want to use the Live Tile feature from the Photos app for the start screen, I turned on already the option to shuffle the photos for the live tile, but why the live tile only shuffling for only about 5-6 photos and that's all??
I tried to reset by turn off and on the shuffling option and turn off and on the live tile option, then again it only randomly take another 5-6 photos to be shuffled and that's all?
In Windows Phone, we have the option for the live tiles Photos app to show only selected picture (favorite list) or whether to show all of the images (never tried this option before, so I don't know is it gonna show through all of the images). So can I have my live tile of Photos on my laptop to be just like on my Windows Phone??

Whenever I receive a new e-mail I get a notification in the Action Center, since this is the way I've set it, I open the Mail app and read the e-mail. The live tile does not show anything though.

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this request, but I am not able to get the Twitter live tile running on my Mom's new laptop. The laptop came with Windows 10 already installed as the main operating system.

The live tile is still not working. I don't remember if upon reinstalling if I was asked if the app should be allowed to run in the background.

I found this sub-forum with guidance on how to allow apps to run in the background.
