Having recently moved from Windows to Mac, the transparent application background in Photoshop for Mac is driving me a little bit bananas. Is there a way to give the application itself a gray background like it has in Windows?

All of my searches on this topic come back with tutorials on how to add a gray background to a Photoshop file, not the application itself... woe is me

Thank you thank you thank you! I switched to Mac this weekend and this was driving me insane. I can't imagine anyone using the program with the transparent background - it is so distracting! –  user114055 Jan 17 '12 at 14:34
    
@MaryAnn that's how gimp is set up, and it really threw me off when I started using it. You do get used to it. –  Rob May 2 '12 at 19:17
