Hello! I accidentally deleted Essentials (Default) workspace, how can I get it back?
Just reset your application preferences and it will come back without loosing any of your customized settings:
To restore preferences quickly using a keyboard shortcut: Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Windows) or Option+Command+Shift (Mac OS) as you start Photoshop. You are prompted to delete the current settings. The new preferences files are created the next time you start Photoshop.
There is an option to restore default workspaces under Preferences (Cmd or Ctrl k) See if that works.
Thank you very much! That helped.
It looks like this solution is no longer working. Not only is there still no way to transfer workspaces but upgrades often break/reset workspaces and essentials classic is the closest to what I use.
I have lost hours reconfiguring workspaces due to this issue over the past 5-10 years.
I've just used the 2019 version for the past several years; it's had Essentials Classic until very recently (some time in the past month). Today I was horrified to find it deleted by Adobe, and am looking for a fix.
In a different post you mentioned being able to somhow "save" Workspaces; is there any chance these saves are downloadable/sharable (similar to fonts), and if so, do you know of any "hubs" of publically-uploaded workspaces (similar to font-download sites)?
It's always a concern when someone who is still using Photoshop 2019 then asks for sharing sites. Is your Photoshop legit? If yes, why are you using an old version, and why couldn't you reset your workspaces or reinstall Photoshop to fix your issue? Just asking.
In Edit > Prefrences > Workspace, try clicking on "Restore Default Workspaces".
