IT'S NOT CTRL + J, IT'S CTRL + BACKSPACE**

fill the actual layer**
to choose the background color, you have to go to the little color squares in the tool toolbar and change the color of the one that's underneath it
the top one is foreground color and the bottom one is background color if that makes any sense.
to fill the actually layer, you can use ctrl + j
how do i fill the background make a new layer and fill it with the colors?
can you message me or somthing and let me know ? please. that would be very helpful . thanks!
