    Excuse my ignorance, first off I'm still very new to the OS X world, and definitely new to the differences in terms of program in OS X when compared to windows.

    When I used Photoshop in windows, it started up with having a white background/workspace; in OS X Photoshop starts up with my desktop being visible. This actually distracts me a bit. I'm wondering if someone could please let me know how to have a plain white workspace when I start up Photoshop instead of seeing my desktop. I understand this is more being picky, but any help on this is greatly appreciated.

    You can go back to windows. You can use a white wallpaper or even a grey one. Otherwise, this is the norm and I quite like it.

    Increase your document's window size so the desktop is no longer visible.

    You could also just go into View > Screen mode > full screen mode.

    Hide Icons

    You can use a program like Desktop Sweeper to hide your icons.
