How do I change the performance preferences?

The Performance preferences enable you to adjust the speed, color quality and display settings to get the performance level that best suits your needs. Your preferences may be affected by the type of operating system you are running and the type of rights your user account allows.

Grayed-out options are not available for selection with your operating system or for the rights assigned to your computer profile.
