How to Fix Weather Tile Missing on Windows 10

Read here how to fix the weather tile missing on the Start Menu or taskbar on Windows 10 by quickly resetting or reinstalling the weather app.

The issue where the weather tile info is missing or not working in the News and Interests widget on Windows 10 is quite common, and it tends to happen especially after a Windows update (like the 1803 and 1809 updates.)

The weather tile is missing probably because it has corrupt files, so to solve this problem, you need to reset the weather app, which will revert it to its default settings, reinstall the weather app, or reset the Start Menu to its default layout.

Next, we will see how to apply each of these fixes step-by-step.

Fix 1: Reset the Weather App to Restore the Missing Weather Tile

Resetting an app is the easiest way to bring it back to its default state, so we will first reset the weather app to restore its initial state.

  1. Enter Settings on Windows Search, and click on Open:
  2. Click on Apps, then select Apps & Features.
    (If your Apps & Features disk space doesn’t add up on Windows, check the article I’ve written about it.)
  3. Scroll down the apps list and find Weather, then click on Advanced options:
  4. On the Weather advanced options, click on the Reset button under Reset:

If this doesn’t work, try to remove it and then reinstall the MSN weather app.

Fix 2: Reinstall the Weather App on Windows 10 to Fix the Weather Tile

Now we will try to completely remove the weather app on PowerShell, then reinstall it through Microsoft Store. Follow the steps below:

  1. Press Windows Key + X to open the Power User menu, then select Windows PowerShell (Admin):
    Windows PowerShell (Admin) on WIndows 10
  2. On the Windows PowerShell, input the following commands to uninstall the Weather app and the News app:
    Get-AppxPackage *bingweather* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *bingnews* | Remove-AppxPackage

    (We will also reinstall the News app since it is related to the weather app. If one of these apps isn’t on your PC, proceed to install them store as specified in step 5.)
  3. Reboot your PC.
  4. Now enter Store in Windows Search and open Microsoft Store:
  5. On the Microsoft Store, search for MSN Weather and Microsoft News and install both on your PC:

This will remove any corrupted files and do a fresh installation of the weather app and news app, thus fixing any issues with the weather tile on the taskbar.

Check whether your weather tiles are still missing; if so, try resetting the Start Menu Layout.

(If only your lock screen is not showing the correct time during Daylight Saving Time, I’ve written an article on how to fix the lock screen showing the wrong time in Windows 10/11.)

Fix 3: Reset the Start Menu to Fix the Weather App

When something is not working properly on the Start menu, like the weather app, the simplest way to fix it is to reset the Start Menu back to the default layout.

Tip: Make a backup of your registry before deleting this entry by clicking on File > Export on the Registry Editor.

  1. Enter Registry Editor on Windows Search and select Run as Administrator:
  2. On the Registry Editor, navigate to:
  3. Delete the entry DefaultAccount by right-clicking on it and then selecting delete:
  4. Restart your PC

Now check if the weather app is displaying correctly on the Start Menu. If not, try to re-register (which is basically reinstalling) the Start Menu app.

Fix 4: Re-register the Start Menu to Fix the Weather Tile

Re-registering means reinstalling the Start Menu. This will naturally replace any corrupted installation files so it can fix Start Menu issues. You can try this so your weather app displays correctly on Start Menu. Here is how to do it:

  1. Press Windows Key + X to open the Power User menu, then select Windows PowerShell (Admin).
  2. On the Windows PowerShell, input the following command:
    Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
  3. Reboot your PC.


The steps to fix the missing weather tile are straightforward and involve trying to reset, then reinstalling the Weather app on Windows 10. And if this doesn’t fix the problem, reset and reinstall the Start Menu.
