Gadgets no longer work when upgrading to Internet Explorer 11

    Question

  • Since upgrading  to Windows Explorer 11, I can no longer display several of my gadgets.  Two of them are working. One cannot be displayed with the proper background, and two cannot be displayed, at all.  I am running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.

  • Usually, add-ons are version dependent and so, they work in that particular version only for which they are designed for. Therefore, if Internet Explorer is updated, kindly check that the suitably compatible gadgets are available from the gadgets' website.

  • Hi,

    Have you tried to reset DPI to 100% Smaller Fonts, then test this issue again?

    I found a similar thread, please refer to:

  • I'm tired of fighting Microsoft on their shortsightedness.  I don't need their stinkin updates.  I have moved back to Internet Explorer 10, and that's where I am going to stay.  After backing out Explorer 11, my gadgets now work again.

  • Unchecking "Enable Enhanced Protected Mode" located under the Advanced tab in IE 11's "Internet Options" likely would have fixed your issue.

  • Carey,

    Your fix comes a bit late.  I'm not even sure it will work, so for now, I am sticking with

    Explorer 10.  I see no big advantages of Explorer 11 except for those with Windows 8.

    No, it most certainly is NOT a fix.
