I was hunting around for ages because this new issue popped up where my transform controls would just... no longer show up. I could still move my image around but couldn't scale the image when selected. To fix this (without restarting photoshop) you will need to go into "freeze transform" mode. To do this the quick way, just hit ctr+t then up the top hit the little tick and they should reappear.
Hope that helps someone.

Maybe you just need to check Show Transform Controls in the tool options for the Move Tool.
Next time it happens I'll try that one out as well,
Thanks for the tip
This is what fixed it for me. Thank you.
Oh no no, in the heading of this thread I said even though "show transform controls" is on. Thats the issue. Even though thats ticked on they will disappear. You can click that on and off as much as you like they aren't going to return unless you go into freeze transform mode and out again.
Just happened to me, Perfect answer thank you so much!
Or you have View>Extras unchecked.
Thanks for that, was driving me crazy! Though it was a grouping issue.
after crazy hours: finally!
This helped me. Thank you so much @Liamthellama. I know this post is 5 years old but it worked for me using Adobe Photoshop CC 2020.
It worked for me also. The other ideas did not though.
Saved me so much time!
Helped me!!!! Thank you!!!
Still helping people in June 2021. Nice one!
