    I have never used Android 9 Nokia 7.2 before, so am finding this perhaps obvious change very hard indeed.
    The main screen shows a time, a date and a temperature - but in Fahrenheit, which is not helpful to me.
    Google engine searching for how to change it to Celsius mentions language settings, but it is set to UK English already, so there is nothing to alter.
    Searching in the phone, it finds an umbrella and "weather temperature unit preference" - but you cannot tap anything to link to the place where this setting is found.
    Some other answers talk about a "google app" but I have no idea what that is.
    I want what I can only describe as "Phone > Settings > Preferences > Temperature > Units : F/C".
    Can someone point me in the right direction please? Thanks.
    (Please confine answers to tapping on the screen, so I can learn the navigation route.)

    Long press on the temperature that shows on screen. Choose app info.
    That will be the app that controls what's displayed on the screen.
    If there is no option within that app to change to Celsius, you will need to install a new weather app from the play store that can show Celsius.

    Thanks - a long press produces "Preferences", but it offers Calendar Events (on off), Upcoming Flight Info (on off), Traffic Info (on off).
    That's it. Not what I'd call helpful options!

    I thought this was part of the o/s - because if it's an app, I would have expected the usual "app info" with "Force Stop" option to come up, but that's not what happens.

    So that is the behavior of the stock launcher on Your device.
    I can only make suggestions based on the device that I use.
    My suggestion, install a different launcher from the play store such as Nova launcher and install a time and weather widget also that has Celsius options.

    Appreciated. It's just going to take time to get into how Android works.

    Well, I signed up for the app store, and popped Nova into the system. Presto the F has become a C. Thanks for the help.

    On the stock launcher, click on the weather. It will open the weather app. Open the menu drawer from the top left. Here you will get the option to change fahrenheit to celcius.
