Some time ago there was a problem with Photoshop launching with all palettes and toolbars collapsed. It has been fixed recently but there is still problem with the Layers palette. It is still starting as collapsed even if the workspace is set to locked in Photoshop 2020.

Howdy Dawid,

What OS are you on?  I'm not seeing a problem on either Win10 or 10.15.0.

Thanks,
David

Same problem here (on latest Win10). I already created a custom work profile, but didn't worked. Layers, Properties etc. are always collapsed at startup. I mean it's not a bottleneck, but just really annoying.

Can you post a screenshot of your entire screen where the Layers panel is collapsed after launch?

I'm on Windows 10 Pro 1903.

Here's the screenshot (Warstwy is the Layers palette).

Funny thing - if I exit the Photoshop while the Curves (Ścieżki) or Channels (Kanały) palette is active, then everything is fine - they remain opened on next launch. Also reordering the palettes doesn't make any difference - the problem persists only with the Layers palette :(

Hello, Dawid, what are the two panels next to history?
Does it happen if Layers is placed above those three?

They are Adjustments and Operations.
