To see the document window you have to open a document or to create a new document.
On the mac you can also activate the Application Frame which will cover the background, Window > Application Frame.

Willi's answer was correct. I am sorry, by the way, that I may not have made myself clear. However, your input regarding the "Welcome Screen" was very helpful.
This was exactly the answer I was looking for. I wish everything I had to do was this simple (smile).
Thank you very much!
