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.

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.

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 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.
My phone is Lumia 630 Dual Sim, running WP8.1, Lumia Denim, all up to date.

I have a weather widget that stopped working after I contacted Microsoft about a problem downloading Silverlight. The tech that helped me took control of my screen for almost 2 hours and in the process I saw him delete numerous files. I assume I lost something I need for the weather widget. (PS I have that widget on my laptop and it still works fine)

I did see the following fix in another post:

Go to "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Services\Cache", open "Config.xml" (RMB -> Edit) and save it (File -> Save) without doing any changes. After 10-20 seconds restart the gadget!

Problem is I don't have that file or path: Under my user name I only go this far "C:\Users\USERNAME
If I look under Administrator I get this far "C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local

Now it only shows alerts, not the temperature. Any idea how to fix this?

Answer:Windows Weather and Lock Screen -- Weather not showing

To get the weather to show on the lock screen TWO things are needed:

Give the Weather app permision to access the lock screen.Tell the lock screen what you want to see.
I think number 2 is set up by default and I think I set up number 1 myself. This was enough to make it work.

Somewhere along the line I mucked up number 2. I do remember experimenting in that area.

Answer:Bing weather app not working in Windows 8

Hi js73,
I wish I had an answer for you, but I'm hoping that matching your problem may help us resolve it. I have the same problem.

Here's my version:
It's my father's notebook that I look after, brand new Samsung with a config that's a lot like yours: win8-64, i7, 8GB. Main diff is that it has Nvidia graphics, but similar. Also has a dual monitor (Medion, 23cm)
...And exactly the same problem. The native Bing Weather app just does not work. (Also, the Travel app).
Mostly everything else works fine. (But not some of the Samsung utilities, Flash player, etc)

Symptom: App starts up but just sits there like its trying to get going - never goes anywhere...

OK. My take..and some of the stuff I've done:
- There's another notebook sitting right next to the Samsung, an Asus C2D, older (also Win8-64) - and all apps work fine on it!
- All was working fine on this machine until one of the massive updates about a month ago appeared to wreck everything. I struggled for days with the whole Metro interface not working. Apps would open for a second and then close.
- Tried refreshes AND resets, no go
- Found a good blog that said uninstall and resinstall al the apps that were doing that - I had tried some, but didn't realize I could try it with native apps (was hesitant to do so). But that brought all back - except for 4: News, Weather, Travel and Finance (not that he wants it)
- Tried many app uninstalls and resinstalls. No go
- Then a couple of ... Read more

Answer:flight sim real world weather not working

Quote: "When I have used up all my Internet quota"

Meaning bandwidth? If you've used your limit, then yes, your downloads are going to be SEVERELY throttled, you'll also have very high latency, because if you have used up all your bandwidth, you'll still get service, but it'll be slow as you have low priority on the ISP's servers.

At any rate, I've just checked my MS Weather app for Windows 10 and for Windows Phone 8.1 and both are able to display maps. Have you checked your bandwidth - it just may be taking some time to load the maps.

I've noticed that Skydrive live tile does not work after upgrading to 8.1. Anyone else notice this?

Prior to 8.1, Skydrive was live, that is it would display the contents of your folder, especially photos. Now, after 8.1, it doesn't work.

So is anyone else's skydrive live tile not working under 8.1?

Thanks

Answer:Skydrive live tile not working under 8.1?

Hello Drew,

In Windows 8.1, SkyDrive is fully integrated now.

You should have a separate SkyDrive app tile on your Start screen for the online SkyDrive, and a SkyDrive folder group in the navigation pane of File Explorer. This folder is located at: "C:\Users\(user-name)\SkyDrive".

I did an install on one machine where it got rid of all my apps (fine by me) and am able to enjoy the Windows store tile along with several other tiles it automatically installed where updates are received automatically.

mail
social media
photos
finance
etc...
I then installed another version (Windows 8 Pro instead of Window 8) which kept all my apps. Unfortunately, I have been going crazy for the better part of a day trying to get the Windows store tile to work and connect to the store where I can download the apps I mentioned above.

You just click it (both are on desktops), and absolutely nothing happens.

I've tried everything all the searches online suggested and none work.

I have 4 GB of memory, a display which is much greater thanb 1024x768. I have an ATI Radeon graphics card with the most updated driver. This is the same exact card in tthe other machine...

What I need is a solid answer my it's not working and what I need to do to get it to work.

Any real help would be appreciated.

btw, I also set the UAC settings to their normal default settings and also didn't work.

Hello,

I'm glad that you can hopefully help, because I've tried some things that don't help.

I've always been using the Weather Channel toolbar on the bottom right of my computer screen to view the tempurature, however the other day, my IE 6 was very slow and so I decided to restart the computer. When I restarted, I got a pop up script error window with a yellow triangle and an exclamation mark inside. Every time I tried to close the window, I had to click it again and again for the new script error windows to close, and finally they did. I didn't write the whole error down, but it was a script error that showed the file destination and that included the Weather Channel folder (http:www.......weatherchannel......), so I know that has something to do with my problem. When I opened IE 6, most sites were looking normal as usual, but when I went to You Tube, MetaCafe, and even when trying to play streaming audio, the web pages for these sites looked very unusual, almost raw (like there weren't completely programmed correctly). Some pictures wouldn't show and they had red X's. The disoriented pages only happened on these sites (and possibly others), but Google, Hotmail, and other sites looked normal.

I put my taskbar on the right side of the display, not along the default bottom edge.
Cortana does not fully display the tile (much of it is off screen beyond right edge)
Moreover the tile never goes away while I try to see my menu behind the tile.
It should be AUTOMATIC that when I select on Cortana tile and try to stop it from covering the menu that I hit something like ESC to make it go away. But it doesn't. Can an interface be any more unintuitive?
This is entirely unacceptable. And Microsoft is saying Win 10 is a major fix of Win 8?

I'm personally going to try to make this simple, and yet cover all of my problems in a small thread.

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 was able to download it after using the search bar menu on the right side of my computer, and was able to start installing some apps.

I recently reset my Lenovo laptop which is running Windows 8.1, using a recovery USB that I created when I initially bought it. After doing a full reset, I noticed that I can no longer rename tile groups on the start menu. I hold ctrl+mwheeldown to zoom out, and can still rearrange the tile groups, but if I right click on one, nothing happens. In the past, doing so would allow me to give the group a name (eg: naming a group of tiles for various IDEs as 'Development'). I know this shouldn't be the end of the world, but it's really bothersome considering I reset the PC to start fresh with a clean slate. I did not have this issue before I did the reset.

Answer:Mail Live Tile not Working after Windows 8.1 Upgrade

OK. Not sure what is going on. My Yahoo Mail account would not allow me to set it up as get messages as they occur. I had to set it up as check every 15 minutes. My Gmail account did not have this issue. But still not getting the live tile to work. I saw 15 apps needed updating now, so did that (mail was one of them), but still no live tile working for mail.

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.

Having only the cpu, ram and onboard video,(keyboard too) just to see
if you get to bios.
To install a new vid card ,w/o new vid card installed.
Go into bios and disable on board video, reboot and turn off the machine
right away. Install new card and boot normally.
post back to let us know

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. Office Pro 2010. 32 bit Outlook. HP laptop.

This started with my searches in Outlook not working. I looked for solutions.
Here is my status and things I have tried:
- Ran scanpst. Errors were repaired.
- Ran Office 2010 "repair" from control panel. Errors were fixed.
- Ran SFC. Errors were found in system files. But when I look at the log file, there are NO files listed as corrupt. Not sure what to do next on this.
- When I go to "Indexing options" There no locations specified for indexing and it says "Indexing is not running"; when I go to "advanced" options, there is NO "file types" tab at all, file settings are grayed out, there is no "index location". when I click "troubleshoot", I get: "An error occured while troubleshooting" "A problem is preventing the troubleshooter from starting". Error detail in attachment.
- I went to "Windows features" under Programs in Control panel. I did NOT turn off Windows search. I turned ON, Indexing service, with no impact.

Yes, I am frustrated.
Can anyone provide additional steps?

I am considering reinstalling and/or repairing Win 7 and Office 2010 from DVDs, if it would not be too disruptive of all my personal settings. Any thoughts on this? I have the DVDs for both with product keys.

Thanks!

1) My 2 year old ACER Aspire 5 keyboard just stop working in a couple of capacities. First, the numbers on the 10 key wouldn't type at all. Checked Num Lock, fine, then tried to type numbers at top of keyboard, well, some typed the right number but most didn't or typed more than one number.

2) Ran Webroot Anti-spyware and Anti-Virus, clean. Then I shook my computer to see if any crumbs or foreign materials were throwing something off, clean. Took out battery, nada.

3) Restored computer to the day before any problems. Changed nothing. Pressed every key to see if something was stuck or key broken. None.

4) The Delete, Backspace, Enter and Space Bar do NOT work at all. So basically, the entire keyboard is not working due to something. If I type any one key, some of them type what I wanted but continue to type the letter or number until I log out of my Google Engine.

5) I have always had issues with the keyboard. I will be typing along and the cursor will randomly go back to previous sentences and start typing what I am currently typing. It is so annoying. Why is it hopping all over the place?

6) A computer major friend who teaches computer classes said to write to Google and maybe I would find others with similar problems. I found several "sticky keys" problems but none on point with none of the keys working or working properly. He suggested perhaps a Trojan Horse virus but my sweeps come up clean...

7) Can anyone help me???

Thank you,

Answer:Laptop keys stopped working and some type the wrong thing...

It could be a virus. But It also could just be your keyboard is bad. You may need to take it to your local repair shop if it. Is a laptop and have them check the keyboard out for you. I really do not think it is a virus.

Hey guys,

I've noticed that when I lock my Windows 10 PC using "Windows key + L" the time is displayed and only sometimes the weather is displayed.

The weather is only displayed some times for some reason...

What can I do?

I just want to see the current temperature at my location.

After closing a tab heavy google chrome window my pc had a crash during this crash the 1 second of the song that was playing repeated til the pc rebooted. After this tho I no longer have any sound at all from my computer. I'm running windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 2 installed. My speakers work I checked them with my mp3 player and the pc isn't on mute or turned down to zero. The strange part that confuses me tho is that the sound mixer window shows audio levels when i do play music or youtube but even with volume at full blast there is no audio as a work around for the time being i've set my pc to broadcast my pc's audio and then just use my lap top to tune into my station to listen to my music but this is getting old really quick when i check my sound card (realtek high definition audio?) in device manager it says 'this device is working properly' is it possible my soundcard broke/fried and it still showing it fine with audio levels moving?

Answer:Lost sound after a computer crash, shows sound working but can't hear a thing!

I've seen that before. Try uninstalling then re-installing the drivers. Worked for me.

Hello,

Lately my PC seems to be running a little slow/odd at times... I have read the sticky on READ ME first and downloaded and completed all the tasks asked in the sticky, that I could... (I do use AVG and tried to run the remover program but it gave me an error (It automatically setup a AVG Remover note on my desktop that is saved and I can provide it later if needed). I'm not 100% sure if there is, in fact, anything on my PC or it's that just not at it's optical proformence (or in my mind, even :confused) just want to go through to be sure & terminate anything if there is... Thanks in advance for your time, let me know where to start & I'll provide what is needed!
 

Answer:a little under the weather?

If you've read the Read me & Run sticky and the follow up post specific to your version of Windows, including downloading and running the suggested programs, you should have log files to upload and attach.

Question: Fan/Weather

Hi!

We're experiencing a heat wave, and the computer fan shifts to highspeed after just a few minutes of the computer being on. Its almost 29 C in the house. I'm wondering if the weather is actually affecting the computer, or if the fan is inadequate. The computer is only a few months old.

Sorry for a silly question, lol.

 

Answer:Fan/Weather

its the weather.. if ur room temp is 29C then the case temp and everything else will also run hotter than usual

Question: Weather App

The Weather app my Lumia 950 never shows accurate weather, on my location. There is one time when it shows 12 am as sunny days, but actually it rains heavily. This does not happen randomly, its constantly. I live in Malaysia, is it because my country doesn't supported? (Most thing from Microsoft doesn't supported in my country).
