    This could be one of your typical stupid questions but . . . I used to be able to click on this square on the start page to get my local weather forecast. I also figured out how to get temps for the two areas where my sons live, which would also display in a kind of loop without my clicking anything. Now the program no longer "loops" on the start page and when I click on the weather sun logo, it takes over the whole screen and the circle goes around for several minutes and never gives me my local weather forecast. I love this program when it's working. Did I somehow do something wrong?

    I have managed to solve this one myself. Having transferred from XP to Sys. 8.1, I really needed to read the Square entitled Getting Started with 8.1. When I did for this problem, I discovered that all I needed to do was right click & click the option for making the square "live". Simple when you know how.
