    Start menu weather tile


    My start menu weather tile displayed temps and so forth when this installation of Win 10 was new (about four days ago). I didn't mess with it because I kind of liked it there. But now it is just a turquoise coloured tile...no information at all...and when I click on it it opens up full screen.

    How can I get it back the way it was?

    Right click Tile > More > Turn Live Tile ON.
    Settings > Privacy > Background Apps > Weather ON.
    It does occasionally go wrong, keep it updated. There are also other Weather Apps in the MS Store, but not always better than the MS offering.

    The first thing to check is that it is still set as a Live Tile. Right-click on it and hover the mouse over 'More >'

    Next, allow it to run as a background app.

    Turn On or Off Background Apps in Windows 10

    If it doesn't work with both those turned on, try opening Weather, wait a while for it to display an updated forecast, then see if the live tile is working.


    Finally, if it still doesn't work, try resizing the tile. I've had occasions where (for no apparent reason) it stopped working as a live tile when set as a Wide tile (my preferred size) but would work if I resized it to a Medium tile. It's been a while since I've seen that problem though.

    It would also be worth opening the Store and checking that the Weather app is up to date.

    Thank you! The resizing trick worked. The tile was turned on, was running in background. I resized it to wide & it reactivated. Then I resized it back to medium...still working.

    As I said, I haven't had that problem recently. Worth checking if your Weather is up to date. I was on 4.31.11905.0...

    ...but I've just updated it, the latest version is now 4.32.12463.0 (and still working as a live tile )
