Previous to photoshop I was using "The Gimp" photo editor. This program brought up a sidebar with all of my tools and a separate window with the picture and the options of "file" etc within that window. It did not have a grey background that contained all of the tools and picture. The picture was free floating which allowed me to view my desktop and do other things at the same time that I was editing pictures.
I was looking for a way to remove the grey work area in photoshop so that I could have a free floating picture with a side taskbar of tools like "The Gimp" has. Is there a way to remove the grey work area so I can have more desktop screen space?
It would be wonderful to have that because I dont need a grey background for my pictures. I know I can change the color of the work area but Im only interested in removing it. I know that photoshop for Mac has this feature but why not PC? By the way, Im running windows XP home with CS3 master collection.
