Layer Panel Does Not Show After Recent Update In Photoshop

I noticed after an update earlier this year, the layers panel does not automatically show when I open an image to edit for the first time. I have to click on the layers "button" on the lower right hand side of the workspace to make it show the layer panel. Once I save that image, any time I open it again, the layers panel is there. If I open a new image to edit, the layers panel is gone again. I have to go back and click the layers "button" again to bring back the layers panel.

 

Not a huge issue, but it is a nuisance issue. Included are images to show what I am talking about.

You omitted specifying the Photoshop version for someone else to verify on their end.

Hello, thank you. Yes, I am having to do that, and clicking on the layers "button" to show the layers every time I open a new photo to edit. It will look like the second photo that I uploaded (the "after" photo). If I re-open a photo that I have already edited and made the workspace adustments, Photoshop remembers the panel sizing and layer panel adjustments that I made previously. It seems Photoshop doesn't remember my workspace preferences anymore when I open up new images to edit. That is my primary complaint. Photoshop didn't do that before. The workspace used to automatically open up as shown in the second image I uploaded.

Sorry I was backwards, the first image I uploaded is how things used to be. "The Before Update". The second image is how it is displaying every time I open up a new image to edit.

I did it manually as suggested from a reply above before seeing your reply. Resetting things fixed the issue. thank you for your reply and suggestion. If it happens again (hopefully not) I will try your suggestion. I have an option for "reset essenstials". I assume that is the option to choose.

That's right. If you are using the Essentials workspace, just reset Essentials.
