For Windows 11:
  1. Right-click on the program's icon
  2. Select "properties" from the menu
  3. Click on the "compatibility" tab
  4. Click on the "reduced color mode" check box
  5. Select "8-bit (256) color"
I assume that it is similar for Windows 10.

This will work for 32-bit programs, but not for 64-bit programs (which didn't exist under O/S versions before XP).

EDIT: Added select "properties" step
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.

Straw Poll

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
