How can I exit out of classic experience mode in Sharepoint?

I tried going into Library Settings-->Advanced Settings-->List experience to "New experience" and it still won't change from the "classic experience" no matter how many times I refresh. I'm not an admin of the Sharepoint site, but the Sharepoint admin has informed me I have been granted access to everything, including the "new experience" view. What else can I do to correct this?? thank you!

Hi @HeatherAppell-2175 ,

Per my understanding, the default settings for the site is classic experience and you set the specified library to modern experience, however it's still classic experience.

Per my test, I can reproduce your issue in some lists and some not, as this official document mentioned:

================================
One simple solution is:
Observe the lower left corner, there should be a Exit classic mode, click it:

In addition, if you want to set the experience of the entire site to modern experien, you can go to the site settings to deactive the SharePoint Lists and Libraries experience feature:

Reference:
Switch the default experience for lists and libraries from new or classic
Enable or disable site collection features

Thank you, I have reviewed the option you sent. However still having issues viewing it at New Experience. The list itself is set to New experience and the site feature mentioned is not active for the site forcing everything into classic. I welcome any other ideas! Thanks so much.

Hi @HeatherAppell-2175 ,

Could you please try to click this option a few more times? Sometimes it does take a few more attempts to be effective. Let me know if the issue persists. :)

Thanks,
Elsie Lu
