WinXP will not go lower than 16bit colour so go figure...

You could try to change all the colors manually to black and white, or create a style file.

well that kind of sucks, I just wanted to go with a simple look :(
:p get one of the old BBCs.
You can revert the colour scheme to the classic style and got to Display Properties / Appearance / and change everything from there.

You could simply change all the colours in display options

Turn the colour down to zero on the monitor?

Only black and white or just grayscale?

Only black and white is probably a bit tricky. Maybe if you used a special theme for it...

There's probably something in the accessibility options for black and white display.

Under the Apperance tab there is a "high contrast white" choice that will get you to black and white. If you don't see it, then it might be part of the accesability options, as somebody else mentioned. I know it isn't something I downloaded.

it should be possable to make XP stay in black and white mode even using the defult skins. There is an option that makes XP fade out all the colors and then come back in full color when you make an apperance change. it should be nothing more then a regestry setting to force it to stay in this black and white mode i'm sure. However I dont know how or were to do it.

I'm also sure you are the first person in history to ever want it :)

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
