    This is a really stupid question. I have always used Yahoo as my home page. It has always had a gray background. I had to have my computer worked on and now it has this blinding white background. I used My Yahoo to personalize my colors and they appear as they should in my yahoo, but as soon as I go back to the home page, there is that blinding white background. My other computers have the gray background. Can anyone tell me how to fix this stupid problem?

    Marye,

    This is actually a very good question.

    Open IE and go to Tools > Internet Options > General > Colors

    Uncheck the Use Windows colors box. The 'Background' color should default to grey. If not, just click on the button and select the color you desire.

    Note: This will only effect the pages that do not have a background color specified in it's coding (such as the Yahoo main page) but will not effect those pages that do have the background color coded (such as the TSG pages).
