Is there any way to display the outside temp in the windows task bar (or status bar or whatever - I mean the place on the bottom right corner where I see the date and time.)? I remeber there used to be some kind of plugin that displayed it in probably Win Vista. In the taskbar settings there is a list of icons that can appear in the task bar but weather is not one of them.

There is a tile for the weather when you click on the start (windows tile) bottom left of the task bar it should be visible you can right click on it and pin it to the taskbar.

I see 2 tiles and both open the same MS app. When I try to drag it to the task bar, I get the red circle with an oblique line symbol, indicating it does not want to stay there.Seems that I cannot attach a screenshot image here, too, only http urls are accepted to insert an image.

Please change the operating system in your TSF User Control Panel so we may better help you. You've posted in the Windows 10 forum. Either method mentioned should work. We assumed it already was in your Start Menu. Now follow either post 2 or 3 from your Start Menu.

EDIT: To be clear I'm talking about the Tiles.

Try the other method I posted.

I updated the UCP to Win 10 (I did not realize XP was there - since I joind this forum). However, I see 2 weather tiles in Start. One with the temp display and one just labeled Weather. The first one cannot be docked to the task bar. It shows the circle with the oblique line icon over it. The second one shows an icon labeled "Link" when I try to drop it on the task bar but does not do anything when dropped. Here is the screen capture video showing what happens. https://ttprivatenew.s3.amazonaws.com/pulse/ak08820/attachments/12496806/ak08820-weather-tile.mp4

Has your win 10 os been fully updated, which build version are you running the info here should help you find out https://www.windowscentral.com/how-check-your-windows-10-build
Heavens, but *that's* an oldie! Not that the instructions aren't accurate, as they are, but I'd pick something with screenshots that are a lot more up to date.

Hitting the Windows key, immediately typing winver, then hitting enter is my full set of "step by step" instructions for this task.

My Windows version is Version 1909 OS Build 18363.592
Still waiting for a solution.
AFIK, I have never seen a temp display next to or in place of the date/time in any version of windows. I think it is a great feature that MS should implement and pay me some royalty.

I am curious did you when trying the info I posted earlier go to more on the options when you right clicked on the tile as there should then be a option to pin to taskbar.
If I omitted that in my previous post my apologies.

There are scads of weather apps that turn up in that previous search, and I know people using a number of them under Windows 10.

The clear gist is you need a third party weather app of your choosing that includes temperature display for the system tray. No one but you can choose which one you prefer, which is why I don't attempt to do so.

I've led the horse to water . . .

I have checked the info I posted and the app in the tiles does indeed get pinned to the taskbar so there should be no need for another app, unless your needs are so very specific as to you requiring the ability to either hover the cursor over or have the app show details with no further interaction from you.
