I have recently began post processing in Fluent rather than CFD post. I am wondering if there is a way to 1) change the variable scales to non-scientific and change the range of the variable like in CFD post. 2) display a contour of temperature, I only see a way to display enthalpy.

The scale can be changed, which version are you using as the button may have moved.
If you're modelling with multiphase switch the phase to mixture (or phase) and you'll see the temperature option. Some properties are per phase and some are for the mixture.

To add, look in the View tab for Colormap, then pick float or general to suit

I found where I can select total temperature under mixture, thank you. When I do this, the temperature contour is a solid color, despite it saying there is a range of values.
I also found the way to change to float for the scale under colormap. Thank you.
I'm using 2020R1 as far as changing the range of the scale goes.

Depending on boundary conditions etc that can happen. Try turning off global range and/or node values. What surface are you plotting on?

The contour showed up once I turned off global range. Thanks!
I still can't find where to manually change the displayed range for a contour/variable.

If you turn off auto range you can change the upper & lower limits.
