How do I increase size of desktop gadgets

I have dwnld & installed the well recommended gadgets:
CPU Usage
Speed test
Google search
They all appear so small on my desktop that they are useless to me.
I need a magnifier to read them which os absurd.
Can I change size & if so how,

17" LCD monitor at native resolution 1280 x 1040.
Icons Med Size.
Text at 130%

THanks
