Next we'll change the background color. From the menu at the top of the screen, select "View," then "Show Utility Drawer." The utility drawer will open to the left of your document. You can hide the utility drawer by going back to "View" and selecting "Hide Utility Drawer." The utilities icon will do the same thing. Select "Layers" at the top of the Utility Drawer. Click on the box next to the word "Background." This will open a new window. Note that if you click the icons along the top of the Colors palette you will have different ways to select colors. These include color wheel, color sliders, color palettes, image palettes and crayons. Select a color.
