I don't know what setting changed, but every time I start up Photoshop 7 for Windows, View â†’ Extras is checked, and a grid overlay appears on the image pane.
I'd like to set the default to View â†’ Extras being unchecked / unticked when I start Photoshop.
There does not appear to be an obvious way to set this configuration within the application.
How can I make Photoshop 7 not show extras when I start up the program?
Figured it out in CS6
View > Show > None
Then exit and reopen and you're fixed. "Extras" won't be on by default anymore.
