Short description of error
On opening blender, in the default scene, when I delete one of the available workspaces, then on trying to add them back from the menu bar doesn't work. That workspace is removed from the menu bar.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Open blender. The default startup opens with the default scene.
  2. In the menu bar from the available workspaces, Right-Click on one of the workspaces e.g Animation.
  3. From the context menu that opens, select Delete. The workspace is removed from the menu bar.
  4. Click on the Add Workspace button.
  5. Then from the menu that opens, select General => [Workspace that was deleted previously]. In this case it was Animation.
  6. Notice that the workspace is not added.

This is happening in the default startup.

It looks similar to my problem (https://developer.blender.org/T66940) Did you imported old blender configuration? Is it possible to add Animation taks before delete it?

It works here for me on Windows 10. Can you try File->Defaults->Load Factory Settings and see if it behaves any differently?

@Luke (winhelp) I did not import old blender config.

@Luke (winhelp) @Gavin Scott (Zoot) I didn't get a chance to check your suggestions. Will do it in the evening today and let you know.

Tried this again as per the suggestions and it didn't work.
However, after deleting the configurations folder of 2.80 and trying again it started working.
