Step 1: Create a new project

The first step is to create a new project in Android Studio. Open Android Studio and select "Create New Project" from the welcome screen. Follow the prompts to set up your project.

Step 2: Add a view to the layout file

Next, we need to add a view to the layout file. Open the activity_main.xml file located in the res/layout folder. Add a view element to the file:

<View
    android_id="@+id/my_view"
    android_layout_width="match_parent"
    android_layout_height="match_parent" />

This will create a new view with an ID of "my_view".

Step 3: Change the background color

Now that we have added a view, we can change its background color. We can do this by setting the background color attribute of the view. Add the following line of code to the view element:

android:background="#FF0000"

This will set the background color of the view to red. You can replace #FF0000 with any color code you want.

Step 4: Run the app

Finally, we can run the app to see the changes we made. Click on the "Run" button in Android Studio and select the emulator or device you want to run the app on. Once the app is running, you should see a view with a red background color.

And that's it! You now know how to change the background color of an Android view. This is a simple task, but it's an important one to master as you develop mobile apps.
