Send feedback. I already did and the more people send feedback, the greater the chance Microsoft will fix it.

I have a problem with shrunken gadgets. Not all, but the 2 accuweather ones I like are displayed so small they can't be read at all. They are about the size of handle to the right of the gadget. Strange huh.
