AutoCAD is a computer-aided drafting program by Autodesk. Upon opening a new drawing in AutoCAD, you'll find the default white background. It is imperative to be able to understand how to change the colour of the background, as white backgrounds waste more of your computer's energy than darker ones. Also, staring at a darker background is often easier on the eyes than staring at a very bright background. Additionally, bright drafting lines often appear much more clearly on a dark background. You can easily change the background colour with a click of your mouse.
