16 Bit Colors

    Question

  • Hi, is it possible to change the Display settings to 16-Bit, at all?

    At least it isn't chouse able in my installation, but some old apps, mostly games, need 16 Bit color, and refuse to run with 32-Bit color.

  • Change the reduce color mode setting for the executable file in the compatibility tab of the file's property page in Windows Explorer.

  • You can try the compatibility mode and change the color mode in there.
