Suppose I resized, duplicated, closed and created numerous areas in Blender. Now how can I return back? If I choose File - Defaults - Load factory settings I will not only restore layout, but also drop any objects in the scene.

How to restore layout only?

Save the project.

Go to the top menu and select: File>New to open an empty file with the default layout.

Again on the File Menu, select "File Open", when the window to select files appears press N (or press the gear icon on the top right) to open the options tab.

Uncheck "load UI" and then select your file and open it.

The file should now open with the default user interface and layout.

I'm the future you can avoid creating a messy interface by using a layout instead of subdividing windows.
