I am intending to restore my default 'geoprocessing>environment' settings automatically, how would I do this?

Unfortunately, applying these tools in the Python window apply there and do not necessarily propagate to the entire ArcMap session. I've always found this frustrating. Starting a new map document is the only "automated" way I know how to do this. Perhaps a Python add-in would do the trick, but I have not tried this.

Resetting Environment using ArcPy

The ResetEnvironments function can be used to restore the default environment values, or the ClearEnvironmentfunction can be used to reset a specific environment.

import arcpy

# Reset geoprocessing environment settings

arcpy.ResetEnvironments()

# Reset a specific environment setting

arcpy.ClearEnvironment("workspace")

Open a New MXD (New Map Document).

the environment' settings restore automatically in new mxd.

you can copy your layers and paste it in new mxd.

Jayanta Poddar​, I have strictly followed the instructions to execute the expression you have provided but It didn't changed the settings automatically. I am not sure what went wrong. I am using ArcGIS 10.3 installed on C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS. However, I am thankful for the anticipation and your time.
