Weather Gadget

I know that the Gadgets are supposed to have security leaks, but the Weather Gadget is really neat. Well the one on my Win 7 at work is. It is a square and has the temp inside and the background changes to sun or overcast or whatever depending on the weather, really neat. == My Weather Gadget at home is just type with the temp, nothing else. What am I doing wrong?

Well, I let Google be my Friend. Strangely enough the fix to this is downgrade Internet Explorer from V 11 to V 10. Then the Weather Gadget works. Very strange..................

My situation may not be the same as yours but I am using V.11 and have the weather gadget displaying as you want. I had a problem and the solution was that I did not have my font size set to 100%--it was 125%. Changing to 100% allowed it to display properly.

(I found this solution somewhere here on sevenforums.)

Yes, I saw that solution. Since I need the bigger size (old eyes) that wouldn't work. Thanks,
