Hi @John John,
You can make the site currently in use to be the default root site by using the replace menu.

I will give you details of how to go about it tomorrow.
Hello @John John,
Select the site you wish to change from being a root site(i.e the classic site), click on the eclipse (...) on the menu bar,select change/remove from being the Home site(If it is still showing it as home site). Select it again and use the eclipse,then select Replace Site. Enter the URL of the new site you desire to be your default home site, then save.
