In this short tutorial you will learn how to disable the new Reddit redesign that is pushed in our all faces by default. If you do think too that the old minimalist style of Reddit is what made it very user-friendly, you can be happy that the community demanded that there would be a way to enable the classic Reddit design once the new design would be released. And I am glad the guys behind Reddit listened to the community. So, here is how you can re-enable the classic design
- Check your username in the right top corner and click on the down-arrow on the right side of it.
- A menu pops up where you need to click on “preferences”.
- Now scroll down until you find the entry “Use the redesign as my default experience” and remove the check mark from it.
- Don’t forget to click on the button “save options” and have fun with the classic Reddit design!
When you log-in your first time during the day and when cookies have been deleted, you need to click on “preferences” again. But that’s all you have to do, because from there it will switch from modern to classic design again. So, it’s like doing it once a day unless you delete your cookies more often. It’s kinda bad, but still a way to use the classic design over the whole day.
