need help with windows color scheme

#1
I do NOT like the default white of the window TEXT area
so I go do the normal RtClk Desktop/Properties/Appearance/Advanced and change the color of the "window' area to medium grey

works great 95% of the time
but when I want to preview an embedded image in a Word Document
(that I have 'fade to white' in PhotoShop, I cannot test it
(because even the preview shows the screen in grey)
unless I go back to desktop and "undo" my tweaks - just for the preview

sooooo
how can I simplify my life?
is there a setting in word 2003 I cannot find to temp over ride my page color?
or some other elegant solution?

-edit-

silly me
used Google (word 2003 page color)
found the answer !
ps
format/background/select color ! :)

pps
found extra trick
after you set background color to white to check your embedded graphics
a simple ^z returns the background to its original shade :cool:
