Solved How can I get my New Version of Yahoo Mail back?

December 28, 2014 at 19:52:32
Specs: Windows 7
I have been using the New Version of Yahoo mail since it was available ( I was using IE10 at the time). When I updated to IE11, my mail went to Classic. I have now deleted IE11 and went back to IE10 since my laptop was experiencing far too many glitches. However, my Yahoo mail is still stuck in Classic. How can I bring back the New Version? (if I recall, it can be corrected in how I have the check marks set in my "delete browsing history"?) Please help asap since the Classic version is completely outdated and unacceptable for me to use. Thank you!

AFAIK, it only reverts to Classic if you downgrade to IE8 or older.

Thank you. Those screenshots are exactly what is missing from my current style of Yahoo mail. I always used to access those very prompts which you showed me, however, my current status of Yahoo mail does not give me this (since it is the older version and those capabilities were not possible at that time)

That is odd since I only downgraded to IE10 and my Yahoo mail is stuck in the old version. I still do not know how to bring it back...very frustrating...any suggestions?

Care to share what the fix was in case the question gets asked again?

I'm embarrassed to say how simple the solution is.
There are two options for Yahoo Mail. One version is the "full-featured" (better known as the "New Version") and the other is referred to as "Basic". If you have chosen to operate your mail in the full featured option and wish to switch back to basic you can do so by hovering over the tools icon (small gear-like icon located in the upper right quadrant of your page) so that the menu appears. Next, click on "settings". Finally, at the bottom of the pop-up box you can select between full featured or basic. Don't forget to tap on the "save" or else it will not switch.
If you are already in basic and wish to switch back to full featured (this was my case), the tools icon is non-existent. In this case, you will see the words "Switch to the newest Yahoo Mail" located near the upper right corner of your page (beneath your Name, Sign Out and Home). Click on this and Voila! you are now back to full featured.
I swear that I stared at the page hoping to see a simple one-button click to solve my initial problem yet I never saw those simple words "switch to the newest Yahoo Mail".
I was in such a panic that my internal screaming of "Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!" blinded me.
Now, for my next problem.....
