How to Display Weather on your Windows 11 Taskbar?


At the release time of Windows 11, Microsoft introduced Windows 10-style weather widget. The Widgets button on the Windows 11 taskbar was a regular button to the right of the Start button. It opened a widgets panel by clicking on the widget button that displayed weather and other information like sports scores and recommended online articles.

Most Windows 11 users turned off this widget on their machine as it was not so helpful. Microsoft has changed it completely and gives the weather information on the extreme left of the Windows 11 Taskbar. It looks pretty, and without clicking on its icon, you can see the weather right from the taskbar.

Now it displays current weather along with temperature and a description of the weather, like Partly Sunny, Haze, Extreme UV, etc., on your taskbar, enabling Widgets on your system.

If you’re using the standard center-aligned taskbar icons, the Weather widget gives information on the left side of your taskbar.

Though, if you’re using left-aligned taskbar icons, the current weather will be displayed as an icon along with your other taskbar icons. But, the only temperature will appear on the icon, not words describing the weather.

How to Enable Weather Icon on Windows 11 Taskbar?

Do these steps to enable the Weather icon; if you don’t see that icon on your Windows 11 taskbar:-

Step 1. Right-click on the blank area on the taskbar and pick the Taskbar settings option in the pop-up menu.

Step 2. Turn On the toggle switch Widgets under the “Taskbar items” section.

After finishing the above steps, the weather icon will appear on Windows 11 Taskbar.

Only turn Off the toggle switch Widgets in the above step to disable the weather icon on the Taskbar.

If you like to align Taskbar icons to the center or left side of the screen, scroll down a bit on the Taskbar settings page and pick the tile Taskbar behaviors.

Under the “Taskbar behaviors,” use the drop-down menu “Taskbar alignment” and select the Left or Center option.
