Are you by chance using an AppImage versiom or MuseScore on Linux? If so, i suspect a permission issue on saving those changes, shortcuts and other customizations then would be affected too

I've seen this problem. When you switch to a custom workspace, whichever toolbar was being used before that is used in the custom workspace. This happens on my Windows 10 system with only 1 account so there are no and have never been permission issues.

It also depends on the settings you established in your custom workspace - if you didn't check the Toolbar option, then those changes are not saved as part of the workspace, by design. If you want them in that workspace, use View / Workspaces / Edit to set the option now.

Status active needs info

So my belief is that the current behavior is correct for the different scenarios I know of, but there could well be some specific case - a combination of different workspaces with or without the Toolbars option checked, which workspace you are in when you make the change, which workspace you are in when you close MuseScore - where something is off. We'd need more information on your workspace configuration and the precise steps, for starting MuseScore to quitting to starting again - in order to investigate further.

I'll agree with you. I just realized I had Menu bar checked rather than Tool bar. I know I have a paper bag around here somewhere.
