vorrei mettere in proprieta -> impostazioni di window non 65.000 colori ma 4 colori in modo che window li misceli automaticamente con tutto, perfino per le icone, è possibile?

Are you talking about running the Windows XP desktop in 4-color mode? The lowest I've ever seen anyone get it down to is 16 colors (i.e. standard VGA). Other than that, you'll pretty much have to resort to screwing around with the appearance settings.

We don't know what you said, because we can't read your language!

ToastyTech has a few shots of Windows 95 running in very low-color modes, but I doubt the same tricks can be applied to Windows XP.
