OK, there has to be a really easy answer to this. When I open PS5 on Mac, I have a large, gray area that will receive a dragged file and open it. I have been doing this for so long, I have forgotten how I set PS to have this happen. 

I just updated to a newer PowerBook, installed PS5, and I can't find the preference to have it open to the gray frame. Don't make fun of an old person, just help him! 8-) Thanks

Phil

Here is the screen shot from laptop. The ivy is not a photo, its desktop. I want it to open with gray background. There has to be someone who knows how to make this simple thing happen.

Hmmm... isn't that setting in the interface? I'm on CS6, but this is my interface settings.

Thanks, Dennis.

In Photoshop click on the Windows menu and you're looking for Application Frame

 

You can turn the grey on and off with that - personally I prefer it off so that when I close an image Lightroom (my usual pre-editor) is sitting directly underneath and I can continue to work on other images without having to manual switch between programmes.

THAT'S IT...Pearl wins the prize! When I am sending remotely from an event, it saves me 2 clicks by being able to drag a file into the frame. I don't use Lightroom on my laptop. Nice job BP!

No help from this oldie.  I just got PS and need to explore that option.  Like BP I start in LR and then "Edit in" PS.
