Shareoint online document libraryclassic view not working

RCDA Webmaster 281 Reputation points

I have a SharePoint online site collection. in one of the sub sites, I added a document library. I went into list settings, advanced and chose: classic experience. The view is not changing to give me the classic toolbar so I can edit the view and have this list display as the other ones on the site do.

What do I need to do in order to get the list to display in classic experience?

    Hi @RCDA Webmaster

    In some cases, even after you change the list experience settings from list settings, you will still be getting the same UI. This is because of the browser cookie! I suggest you can take the following steps to troubleshoot this issue.

    1. Simply clear your browse data and reload the page to fix the problem.
    2. Try another browser and switch to classic mode.
    3. If you use some web part in the library or list, please make sure there is no closed web part.
      Add ?contents=1 to the end of the page URL in your browser address bar. This will take you to the Web Part Page Maintenance page. Are there any closed web parts on the page? Delete those web parts. Return to the page.
