SharePoint site contents page

On the SharePoint Online site contents page, site owners can view a list of all pages, libraries, lists, and other apps on their site as well as the list of subsites. The site contents page also provides clearer access to add lists, pages, document libraries, subsites, and apps.

How do I go back to classic experience?

If you want, you can return to classic experience of the site contents page by clicking Return to classic SharePoint at the bottom left.
