I find with filters being so important I frequently get confused and click the add button instead of the filters one when I want to create a new filter
The DataGrids remember certain aspects about how you've set it up so when returning those settings are restored. A possible solution may be to remember if you have Filters selected so when returning to a DataGrid filters is already selected.
We'll give this one some thought.
