If you use Windows’ Remote Desktop Connection a lot, you will find that the UI is a little ugly. In fact by default, the Remote Desktop Connection is in 16 bit color mode. In order to have a better experience, it would better setup a true color remote desktop connection. Here are instructions for you.
For Windows Vista users, you already have the latest remote desktop clients, so you can make sure that your connection’s “Options” is using “High Quality (32 bit)” color in “Display” tab, and using “LAN (10Mbps or higher)” in “Experience” tab.
If you are using Windows Vista Professional or Windows Vista Premium, you may following similar instructions of “Enhance Terminal Services’ Color Depth by MMC” to make your connection become true color (24 bit) connection. If you are using Windows Vista Home Edition, you can use registry editor to add a key as following:
Or you can download the registry file VistaTerminal24bitColor.reg and merge it into your system.
Or you can download the registry file XPTerminal24bitColor.reg and merge it into your system.
