# Convert fahrenheit in celsius in MS Windows Vista

I am not a Windows user, but we need to find a solution for converting Fahrenheit in Celsius degrees in MS Windows Vista?

I know that it should be possible using a formula, but is there any native way to make this conversion using the built-in calculator application? Note that I am not looking for alternatives but I just want to know if this is possible in Vista.

While it's available in Windows 7, 8 it's not available in Vista.

It's available in the included calculator application. I'm using Windows 8, but i think it's the same in Windows Vista.

You only need to press Ctrl+U.

Update: Looks like this answer is not correct. According to Wikipedia, the unit conversion feature comes with Windows 7.

Alternatives: While it's not built-in, you can download a third-party calculator instead. For example, i found this Conversion Calculator. In the web, there are a lot of sites for these as well. Even Google is one.

Hope this helps!

• That's the issue! While it's available in Windows 7, 8 it's not available in Vista. Tested and it won't work. Mar 26, 2014 at 7:51
• Just updated my answer as well! Mar 26, 2014 at 7:51
• Can you copy-paste the Wikipedia paragraph? I don't find it... Mar 26, 2014 at 7:53
• @IonicăBizău It's in the Windows 7 section. Mar 26, 2014 at 7:54
• You should correct the complete answer then. It is clear that Vista still ships with the XP / previous calc.exe

You can simply do this using Google. just type it as below

1 Fahrenheit = Celsius

and it will show an online converter where you can even enter custom values.

This can also be used to do different other conversions. I use it to to USD to INR conversion.

1 USD = INR

All the best.

• It also understands `1F to C`, which might be easier to remember Mar 26, 2014 at 18:29
• And also `1F in C` Mar 26, 2014 at 19:19
