    Weather app in notification area


    A weather app (?) has mysteriously appeared in my notification area. Apart from it showing Sheffield 80 miles away I would just like to get rid of it. How?

    I have exactly the same but the icon, weather is showing location Rotherham, I live in Somerset!
    No settings except exit.
    Could be a handy icon if I knew where to change the location.
    Other than this post I cannot find any info on this.

    I have 2 Windows 10 machines and the other doesn't have this.

    Hi

    I just typed Weather in search and then changed the default location in the app.

    This icon is not the weather icon that appears as a tile in the start menu (which I can change the location of) It is a icon attached to the notification area next to the system clock.
    I think I would be useful if I was able to control the location otherwise I will just exit it and turn it off (which is the only control I seem to have)

    Have you set your device location in Settings>Privacy>Location?

    Location settings are on.
    I have now exited the icon, so no way to re enable it as I don't know where it is or what it is called.
    I will reboot and see if reappears.

    Have a look in task manager and switch to the startup tab at the top
    check in that list to see if anything weather related

    Just checked nothing weather related and certainly nothing I don't recognise

    is it possible for you to do a screen image of the icon (snipping tool if it is a default install in windows and available)

    might jog someones memory if they have seen it before
