    I don't know if my question makes sense,
    but can this be done? I am not talking about
    the background of an image or the window
    of an open image. I am talking about the
    background of Photoshop 7 when you first
    run the application. Please see the attached
    image. Thank you!

    your question doesnt make much dont really explain the problem
    nor is there an attached image.

    if you need to get rid of the pesky background layer....go to your layers
    menu....double click on the background layer...and either rename the layer
    yourself or opt for the defaul "layer 0". it will no longer be a background
    layer and you are free to do what you want. (if it is a giff tho you will
    have to go to image/mode/ and choose RGB rather than Indexed)

    hope this helps

    Do you mean the area around the whole image (the apron as some have
    called it)? If so, yes, Shift-Paint Bucket. If you mean the default
    application window you can do that in Display Properties. Depends which
    Windows you have but I think it's usually under Appearance>Advanced.

    You cannot but consider yourself lucky you have a nice neutral background.
    If you were on the Mac you'd have to work with your desktop and icons around
    your work.

    Actually there are some advantages to that-- switching between
    applications, dragging and dropping, etc. Many Mac users prefer it.

    You are totally right, it is in Control Panel> Display> Appearance> Item:
    Application Background.
