I have a couple of SharePoint list that will not exit classic experience. I have the link to do it, but when I click on it, it will refresh the page and still show classic experience. Something is messed up with the list, but I can't figure out what it is. Does anybody have a clue? Thanks!

Yeah, same issue here.

I have this same problem.  I have narrowed it down to ONLY List that were created by an export from Excel.  List that were created directly within SharePoint do not have this problem.

 

In addition, it "might" be related to Office 2016.  Before our company moved to Office 2016, SharePoint List created by Export from Excel fully supported the "exit from classic experience".  However, that might be completely unrelated and just a coincidence.

@Ryan Kohn : I presume, there might be some customization happened on Display Form (Allitems.aspx), if any customization happened in Display form then SharePoint will not allow user to view the list in Modern Experience.

But if you are pretty sure that there is no customization happened in your Display form, then go to List setting -> advance setting -> scroll all the way down and there you can see option called List Experience, there you can select New Experience. this will overwrite the Default Experience.

IIRC, when I originally hit this problem that setting didn't help me.

 

Eventually I tracked this down to a bug in SharePoint (confirmed by MSFT support). 

 

There was a workaround in that there was a training "#" sign at the end of the URL. If that "#" was removed you could get out of the classic experience.

 

EDIT: Eventually, this bug was fixed.

Hi Team

I have a couple of SharePoint lists that will not exit classic experience. I have the link to do it, but when I click on it, it will refresh the page and still show classic experience. And the list Item contains more than 51,000 and display open on SharePoint on-premises grouped by (x column ) but not on SPO

Help me
