This is what it looks like whenever I open up Photoshop.
I want it to look like this. So every time I open up a new document, or open up Photoshop for the first time, I have to close multiple tab groups, drag the tools bar to the right, change the color bar to color wheel, and reinstall a brushes .abr file.
Is there a way for Photoshop to remember these preferences, or do I have to do this manually every time?
Sounds like a permissions issue on your PC. Are you logged in as an administrator?
Does Photoshop have read/write permissions to the preferences folder location?
Thank you for responding! It turned out that creating a new workspace was what I needed, but I appreciate your help very much!
Have you saved a custom workspace for youself? Upper right corner - click on the dropdown next to the icon to the right of the magnifying glass.
Yes, that's what fixed it! Thank you so much for your help, I knew there had to be a way to get the settings fixed but couldn't find it until your advice 😄
If I save my workspace does that save my brushes and other downloads like patterns too. When I add brushes and actions, then log off and come back my new ones are gone.
You still need to save those separately - they are not considered part of a workflow.
