You may notice a change in the look and navigation of your document libraries and lists. This new experience is faster, has additional phone and tablet features, and simpler navigation. As a document library or list owner or site owner, you may want to switch the default experience back to the previous (classic experience) for a time. Keep in mind that users can change the experience in specific libraries or sites back to new if they choose. A change to settings at the library and list level overrides changes at the site, and site collection level.
Note: This article is for library and list owners who want to change the default experience for users. If you are an individual user and you want to return to classic experience, click Return to classic SharePoint in the bottom, left corner of the page. To exit the classic experience, click Exit classic experience in the bottom, left corner of the page.
If you're a global or SharePoint admin in your organization, see Change the default list and library experience.
