Windows 7 Weather Gadget Displays Incorrect Location

Hi all,

I added the weather gadget to my desktop, but it lists the incorrect location.

What it lists is: Mount Gilead, NC
What it should say: Mount Pleasant, NC

Anyone know how to change it to Mount Pleasant, NC?

Thanks,
Joseph

Welcome to the forum Joseph. Usually, weather apps will use the closest location they can to the one you want. We don't know if that's the case here. We also don't know which weather gadget you're referring to, but most likely it has the ability to set your options or preferences. You might also check with the manufacturer or designer. Do they have a webpage or a forum? Or, do they offer (e.g. some have a Contact Us section) their phone number?

Does each city have a different zip code ? I usually enter them by zip code or Name & State.
