    .

    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Here we'll scroll all the way down until we get to Weather, and then press on that tile

  5. 5
    Now, we can see we have one option, the Vake Saburtalo in Georgia
    .
    Swipe to the right to open more options.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    We will go to favorites
    .
    This is where we're going to do most of our work. They won't let you delete this particular location. For some reason they always want you to have one location in the phone. Even if I press on the location and we press the pencil at the bottom of the screen, which is the edit button, it won't let me delete it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    As you can see, the trash bin has been deselected
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    The only option we have is to add a new location, which we can do by pressing on the plus sign at the bottom of the screen
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    We can type in London, and then select it from the list that pops up
    .
    This will add a new location.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    We're going to tap the plus sign again and add another location
    .
    Let's add Paris, so type that in and select Paris France from the list.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    Now, you can see we have three location options
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    The little symbol at the top right corner of this top location, the house, means that this is the Home location
    .
    However, we can change that.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    There are two ways to change the Home location
    .
    We can press and hold down on one of the locations.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    This will open up a menu with options to remove, set home, or pin to start
    .
    If you need to know the weather in multiple locations, you can pin multiple locations to the Home screen. That is an option.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    If we want to make London the Home, we just select set home
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Now, London has moved up to become a priority, and it has the house symbol
    .
    That means it is the Home site and obviously the most important.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    We get as many options as we want
    .
    Then if we scroll from left to right, we can see the information for the location that is highlighted.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    If we press down on another location, such as London, that brings up the weather for that location
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    If we press the pencil at the bottom, it selects all of the locations for editing
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    By pressing on the upper right corner of a location, we can select it
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    We can delete a location by pressing on the delete button at the bottom of the screen
    .
    This did not work for Saburtalo, so let's try Paris.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    We can press the delete button now, and as you can see Paris has been deleted
    .
    Because Saburtalo in Georgia was the first location, it seems to have cemented that location into the application. It doesn't seem to want to let that location go.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    We can use this section to delete things, but if we press on the background, the locations are no longer highlighted
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    If we press and hold down on a location, an option will appear for us to pin it to start
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    If we press the pencil at the bottom, all locations will be highlighted again
    .
    At that point, we select a location by pressing on it once.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    If we press the house at the bottom of the screen, it will make that location the Home location
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    Another way to pin a location to start is to tap on it once
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    Now, we can tap on the push pin icon at the bottom of the screen
    .
    This will pin it to the start menu.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    To move the weather location around the start menu screen, press and hold to activate it
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    Then drag it to move it into the space you want
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
