Windows 7: IE 11 Use large icons no longer works

IE 11 Use large icons no longer works


I've been using the registry tweak found below in IE 10 to get Large Icons but this doesn't work anymore and from what I read it's because IE 11 is designed for Windows 8. Does anyone know a registry tweak to make this work in Windows 7.

Yes I have Always been using that tweak myself too. And it did work in Windows 8 also. But since I upgraded to Windows 8.1 and got Internet Explorer 11, it ain't working anymore.

Edit: Funny enough; if you enlarge the system to 125% then do apear so they are somewhere in the system. But now a way to enable them in normal 100% view.

ie11 is a bit DPI finicky,
I didn't have many issues using 125% DPI and page zoom at 125% but others were seeing Gadgets not operating ?
Adjust dpi settings,
It didn't any different than ie10-9,
