    when I want to view my brushes they appear on a black background screen so they are not visible .Is there any way of changing the color of the background?

    Go to Edit>Preferences>Interface and try to change to one of the other themes and see if it helps.

    sorry, I did not express myself clearly.
    It's when I open them in File Explorer that they open on a black tile and the brush is black as well. I wanted to know if I could change that black on the tile background.
    But ...I have now found a different solution, if I open them with my Lenovo Photo Master Photo Viewer instead of with the Windows viewer I can see them clearly. Thanks for your input.

    I see you are opening a .png not a brush(.abr), are you using a custom theme?
    Do you get the black background on .jpg also?

    It's only the black png's that cause a problem coloured ones I can see fine.

    if we could change the black background all would be solved
