    Is Windows 10 limited to 256 colours while unregistered?


    I've recently configured my Apple Mac Pro to dual-boot with Windows 10. I'd done this a couple of times before (with a Mac Mini + Win7) and in the past it all went pretty smoothly. The Mac Pro is a much more powerful machine and offers AMD FirePro D300 GPUs (Display Adapters). And the D300 is pretty powerful too (or so I thought...) Its 'Properties' window shows me a wide range of display modes and refresh rates - all of which apparently support 32-bit colour.

    BUT... no matter which setting I choose in the Properties dialog, Windows itself invariably reports only 8-bit colours - and to my eyes, the colour palette definitely does look a bit limited. Is this a bug in Windows 10 or is it something to do with the fact that Win10 isn't registered yet on my system? It's genuine Microsoft - but the poor colour performance is the main reason I haven't registered yet.

  2. 256 colour

    I have a CD-ROM that requires 256 colour that I very much want to keep usable, is there any way I can change to/use/get 256 in Windows 10 to enable me to run this program?

  3. 256 Character Limit still exists on Windows 10?


    Guys, does the 256 character limit still exist on Windows 10?

    I love organizing my folders and sub-folders and sub-sub-folders and organizing everything deeply, and I always had the 256 character limit as a major pain in the ass, forcing me to shorten folder names and stuff and waste time.

    Does that limitation still exist in Windows 10?

    Thanks

    256 Character Limit still exists on Windows 10?

    Hi friends,

    I love organizing my folder and sub-folder but when I am trying to do it shows this 256 Character Limit.

    Its irritating.

    I was earlier told that it doesn't exist now. But now I am facing it and the news was negative.

    Kindly suggest me how to resolve it?
