    application background
    I'm migrating from PC world and one thing I've wondered is: Is is possible on a Mac to make your applications run with a background so you can't see the desktop and other open programs behind the application you're in?

    thanks.

    Not see the Desktop? That would be a new one on me.

    Not see other open Applications... use Spaces.

    The desktop is the background. If you don't like the way it looks, you can change it to something more attractive (or less distracting) in System Preferences. You can also hide desktop icons from the Finder's preferences.

    You can hide other applications by assigning them (or moving them) to different Spaces, as toMACsh noted or individually by choosing the Hide and Hide Others commands in the Application menu.
