    This is not correct (unless you want to add a major city). If you want to add your correct location choose ‘Places’, NOT ‘World Weather’ and enter your location. When it’s found and displaying on the screen, right click and set as default in the bottom menu.

    Having set an incorrect place for my Home weather location, how do I change it? It is easy to add and delete additional weather locations but having set the Home location, it appears impossible to change it.
