    I love this software, not only because of their small memory footprint and wide range of supported formats, but also because they can show thumbnails of the pdfs in Win64. Here's the link of their nightly releases hxxp://xhmikosr.1f0.de/sumatrapdf/

    I swapped Sumatra for PDF-XChange some time ago but I think I'll give it another go

    Open SumatraPDF-settings.txt and change it. EDIT: Strange, I can't find that option. Did you make a feature request?

    Use colorpicker and put the hex value in the advanced settings.

    That's not the one. He is talking about the grey background, which you can't change apparently.

    that's right
    you can change the (yellow) background colour of the main program window (when you open Sumatra)
    but not the (grey) background of PDFs and other documents

    I've been running the Sumatra PDF 64-bit pre-release versions without issue for well over a year in Windows 7 without issue as the configured Action for application/pdf Content Type in Mozilla browsers. I give it a big :thumb: in that task and for fast, snappy, resource friendly webbunetz PDF viewing. (For serious readings of books, manuals, etc., PDF-XChange Viewer is my system default.)
