Does Windows>Recently Closed Docks work?

If not Windows>Dockable Dialogs>Layers should do it.

Assuming that you haven't customised it, an uninstal and reinstal will reset it to whatever you had to begin with.

I you go to the menu bar in GIMP you will see Windows. Click on there and select 'recently closed docks' and you should find the Layers dialog just as it was before.

Alternatively, if you use CTRL-L you will get a skinned-dow Layers panel. At the top right you will see a trianle pointing leftwards. Click on that and select 'Add tab' and you can add any one of a number of functions.
