I promise with you all that I won't change this background color permanently to something else
It's just that I saw it changeable at someone's end but I couldn't at mine so I just so curious, that's all

Martha, I'm using XP SP1 and I tried changing it in ... Appearance|Advance 's Desktop but it didn't change the color of the workspace .... so I thought we're talking 2 different things

Victoria, it didn't work

Ok, I've just done it!

1. Make sure you have an image open.
2. Choose the Paint Bucket Tool
3. Choose a Foreground Colour of your taste
4. Hold down Shift while clicking in the space surrounding the image.
5. It should change colour!!!

I'm on XP too, and I've just tested it. The workspace colour will revert to grey when you have no image open, but will be your chosen colour every time you open an image.

seems you have your answer; good

for those that work with psp, at least in version 9, you can change the workspace. simply right click on the workspace itself and you'll get a menu. at the bottom of the menu is an item that says 'workspace'. click on that and follow the prompts.
