Default Desktop Background Color


I wonder if someone can tell me if / how the background color - behind the slides as it plays - can be changed?

When I play my PPT on my computer, the background that is not a part of the package is black (my desktop area). So, since my PPT is widescreen sized, I have black showing at the top and bottom like this:

Maybe this won't show if I use a projector and movie screen?

The background colour can only be black. It will be much less obvious when projected.
