    Is there a way to reduce a gadget size? I like the clock that comes
    with W 7 but would like to reduce its size. Is that possible?

    You can't resize any of the gadgets as far as I know.

    I have just downloaded/installed a smaller clock (it looks like a blue shiny
    web button, very nice and not too big).
    Right-click on the Desktop>Gadgets>Get more gadgets online.
    Find a clock you like better than the clocks provided with W7..
    Click Install - it will give you the choice to Install or Save.
    Click Save and save the file in Downloads (or anywhere).

    Double-click on the file to install.

    Go to control panel/display and change test size and gadget size will
    also change.
