I'm not really sure how to explain my problem, but I was using Photoshop (6) the other night, and the usual gray "background" (what encloses your image) turned to black. I don't recall changing it myself, nor do I have any idea how it changed.

I know that there are 3 buttons on the toolbar that allow you to change your views - the third one fills the screen with black and bottom toolbars disappear. I tried Adobe at another computer, and when you press the first and second buttons, after pressing the third, it goes back to the default gray background, unlike what my is doing.

So...I guess my question is: Does anyone know either how I changed it and/or how I can change it back to the default gray?

(I've tried restarting my PC, restarting my Prefs file )I actually can't find it on my computer), and opening and re-opening Photoshop more than once.)

Thanks! I hope I wasn't too confusing!

The canvas border color or the Photoshop background color?

If it is the canvas border color you can change it by Shift-clicking with the Paint Bucket tool. The Default Color is C0C0C0.
