IE8 in 256 colors (low colors)

    Hello,

    I would like to know if it's possible to execute IE8 in 256 colors
    mode (8-bit colors display). I'm running it on a Windows 2003 Terminal
    Server with 256 colors display and the IE8 menu and toolbars are very
    ugly!
    So my question is, is there a parameter or registry key to have a "IE6
    colors look-like" for IE8?

    Thanks in advance!


    Louis

    Change the color scheme and theme to Windows Classic to see if the problem
    clears up, then revert to 5the XP theme and color scheme and see if the
    problem is still cleared up.

    There was an issue where the tool bars would appear in black. I fixed mine
    through the Desktop Properties. I changed the Theme and the Appearance
    selections to Windows Classic, and the toolbar colors came back.
