How to use Snow Tracker

  1. The Snow Tracker

    The Snow Tracker sits on your desktop wherever you choose. The temperature will also appear in your taskbar. Right clicking on the application gives an option panel that allows you to change how the Tracker looks and behaves.
     
  2. Installation for Windows

    Please ensure that you do not have the Snow Tracker application running during the installation of the new version.

    After clicking on either the PC or Mac download option, you will be asked to either "run" or "save" the file. Choose "run" which will take you to the Tracker Setup Wizard. This may take a few minutes depending on your connection speed.

    Follow the prompts to finish the installation. The Tracker will launch a preferences panel for you to enter your location or postcode plus setup any alerts. A shortcut icon will be added to the desktop and the taskbar temp will display.
