Set Weather Location in MSN Weather

David in Minnesota asks:

My weather location keeps changing in MSN. Is there a way to fix this problem? I’m using Internet Explorer 9 on Windows 7 64bit. Thanks!

Hello David and thanks for the great question. MSN allows you to view news, stock quotes, entertainment news, as well as weather. You can set your location as the default for the weather. If your weather location is changing, it could be for many different reasons.

Set the Default Location

Open Internet Explorer and navigate to the MSN website. Click the Sign In link in the upper right corner of the screen, and then enter your Windows Live ID account username and password to sign into your account.

Navigate to MSN weather by clicking the More link at the top of the screen and then click Weather.

Click the Find a Location link so you can set your city. Enter your city name and state, and then hit Enter. The weather information for that city will display on your screen.

Enter your city and state and hit Enter. MSN will pull up the weather information for the desired city. Click Save to save the settings.

Delete Other Cities Listed

Click the More Saved Locations link below the city. Any locations that are saved for the MSN weather will be listed on the screen. Click the X by the locations that you no longer need to delete them. If the location is not there, MSN will not be able to change to it.
