This article was previously published under Q100485


The Musical Instruments icon may change from color to black and white when starting and while running Musical Instruments. The icons of other applications may also turn black and white when Musical Instruments is started. When you switch back to the desktop, however, the icons should return to their original colors.


This also occurs when running other applications, such as Adobe Photoshop. This occurs with any application that changes the System palette.

When an application changes the palette, the Macintosh System checks to see if enough of the standard colors are still available to render the icon correctly in color. If there are not enough standard colors available, it draws the icon in black and white.
