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.

Ues the 'f' key to toggle the display mode?
window -> grey background/options bar -> black background no Options Bar
