indeed folks; I confirmed it myself by uninstalling ie 11 and sure enough; the gadgets came back exactly the way I wanted them to come back; full color and all!; so yes it appears it indeed is a problem with ie 11 because I think the reason is ie 11 is really meant for windows 8 and 8.1; even though it is compatible with windows 7; dont know where the problem lies; but indeed that did solve my problem so thanks everyone who contributed to this!

So this bug with DPI >100% and Win7 Gadgets when you install IE11 is still unfixed? Is MS sleeping?
Not only this, but also IE11/Accelerator blue arrow gadget won't work correctly if DPI >100%...

A lot of users won't install IE11 for these reasons.

Microsoft has discontinued Gadgets. Therefore, there will be no future support.

They "say" gadgets are a security risk. True or not, they don't want to support them. Whether the design of IE11 specifically corrupts them, or it is a side effect. They don't see this as a problem to fix, so don't expect one.

... and that's the problem. Shame on Microsoft
IE11 not only breaks gadgets with DPI 125%, but also the Browser Accelerators blue arrow gets misplaced and hard to click on... what a bad Windows 7 port. Something in IE11 is seriously broken about screen resolution/DPI aspect on Windows 7. I'm surprised they have not fixed these bugs yet, maybe Google is paying them too for Chrome...

Thanks From Me Too Jerry!

Just bought a new ASUS Eee, very small, PC with Windows 7, IE11. Some gadgets don't work, but not having a clock?! No, please! Got one now. So happy and relieved. Great job, great forum. Thanks again.

What now works best is to install version 12 or higher of 8GadgetPack - Gadgets for Windows 8 / 8.1
