How to change the new GitHub interface to the old one:
To change the new GitHub interface to the old one, I am going to use an open source Chrome extension called Make GitHub Great Again. There is no rocket science involved in this process and you will just have to install this Chrome extension to toggle the dark GitHub top bar to the old light top bar. You can download this Chrome extension from the link provided at the end of this tutorial. After that, simply click on its Chrome extension icon to toggle the GitHub interface from new one to old, and vice versa. You can notice the difference from the screenshot below.
After you will click on its Chrome extension icon, the GitHub webpage will be refreshed and the old interface will be loaded. The best part is that it just refreshes the GitHub webpage only for the very first time and after that, you can instantly switch between the old and new GitHub interface as per your preferences.
