In Vista, I changed the "Window" color in Appearance Settings to an off white, rather than stark, bright white in some Windows pages. The only app that presents any problem in, is Notepad. I don't print a lot from Notepad, but if I do, it prints the off white background color. I can't find any settings in Notepad or even a registry value to enable / disable printing the background.

Has anyone found a way to turn off printing the background in Notepad? I know there are Notepad replacements. The last thing I need is another app.
