Hi all,   You can turn off the 3D mode or exist from the 3D workspace by going to Photoshop > Windows Menu > Workspace > Select the "Essentials (Default)" option. Check out the below screenshot for your reference:   To know more about Photoshop workspace, refer to https://helpx.adobe.com/in/photoshop/using/workspace-basics.html   Hope it helps. Thanks, Mohit

Hey, this looks mostly correct and I found it after this but, with the new updates since 2016 it is now under the "Window" button then "Workspace". Thx.

None of these options worked for me (possibly because I'm on a Mac), but I discovered another way that solved it.

 

  • Click on the main "Photoshop" drop down menu (to the left of File).
  • Select "Preferences."
  • Select "General..."
  • Select the box "Reset Preferences On Quit."
  • Select "Ok."
  • Close out of Photoshop.

When you open it back up, everything should be back to normal.

I'd been struggling with this recently in Photoshop CC 20.x. The answer by Silkrooster either was incorrect or not applicable to me, and JJMack's answer admittedly glazed right past my eyes after he said "3D is not a mode you turn on and off" though in the end his instructions were accurate.

 

As of Photoshop CC 20.0.3, here's what I've found to exit the 3D workspace i.e. "turn 3D mode off" (including a screenshot for the more visually minded people):

 

  1. Find the Window menu.
  2. Find the Workspace menu within.
  3. Choose the workspace you'd like to switch into (likely Essentials if you're here asking this, but feel free to explore the other workspaces now that you know where to find them)
