  • With  some  gadgets,  you  may  need  to  adjust  the  settings  to  make  it  relate  to   you  or  make  it  to  your  liking.  In  this  guide,  I  will  give  you  the  example  of  adjusting  the  setting  of  your   weather  gadget  to  make  it  show  the  weather  forecast  in  your  area.
  • Locate  the  settings  option.  Depending  on  your  gadget,  it  will  be  in  the  top  bar’s   drop-­down  list,  or  it  will  be  inside  the  gadget’s  window.  In  this  example,  I  will   be  using  the  WeatherBug  Gadget  that  I  showed  you  how  to  add  to  your   homepage  in  the  previous  tutorial.  Across  from  the  WeatherBug  logo,  you  see  the  “Settings.”  If  you  click  on  the   word  settings,  it  will  take  you  to  just  this  one  gadget  showing  on  your  page,   none  of  the  others,  and  you  will  be  able  to  edit  your  preferences.
  • Click  the  Settings  option.  The  gadget  will  take  you  to  the  settings  menu.  
  • Click  the  “+  Add  Location”  button.  You  will  see  the  gadget  change  again  and  a   search  bar  appear,  with  text  above  it  saying  to  enter  a  Zip  Code  if  you’re  in  the   US  or  enter  a  City  name  for  anywhere  in  the  world.
  • Enter  your  location,  either  by  Zip  Code  or  City,  and  click  “Search”.  I  entered  a   zip  code  of  another  area’s  weather  I’d  like  to  see:  85901. Afterwards,  subtle  results  show  up  right  below  that  search  bar.
  • Click  on  your  desired  location  from  the  result(s)  that  appear.  You  will  now  see  your  new  location  and  the  previous  one.
  • Click  the  “Edit  Locations”  link  you  see  next  to  the  two  location  tabs  at  the  top. You  can  change  it,  or  delete.
  • This  gadget  came  with  a  set  location  that  you  can  delete  or  change,  and  I  have   now  shown  you  how.    With  gadgets  like  this,  you  may  have  more  than  one   forecast,  and  it  is  even  separated  instead  of  side  by  side.  Feel  free  to  add  a   location  to  see  what  the  weather  is  like  in  a  favorite  city  you’d  like  to  visit,  or   where  your  friends  are.    All  you  have  to  do  is  follow  these  instructions  to  change  those  settings.  As  you   see,  there  are  several  preferences  throughout  the  gadget  (how  many  days  you   want  the  forecast  to  show,  the  location,  units  of  measurement  in  Celsius  or   Fahrenheit)  that  you  can  change  to  your  liking.  It’s  all  about  personalization.
