Suddenly I observed there is a change in look and feel for site contents. The new look and feel looks good but few of customer might not like the new look if there is custom master page applied to system pages as well. OK.. So we have multiple options to revert it with classic mode.
1. Navigate to Admin centers, further click on SharePoint.
2. Click on Settings -> SharePoint Lists and Libraries experience, select Classic experience which will be applicable to all site collections.
We have to click on “Return to Classic Sharepoint” which will show the site contents with the custom master page in classic view .
Now the scenario is you will have to apply the changes only for specific sites. Let’s do some COSM +PowerShell scripting to achieve the same.
Please find below PowerShell script and execute against your site.
This feature is site level feature and you will have to do it for all the sub sites including your parent/root site.
$0 = $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Definition
$dp0 = [System.IO.Path]::GetDirectoryName($0)
$username = “****@**.com”
$password = “*****”
$securePassword = ConvertTo-SecureString $password -AsPlainText -Force
# connect/authenticate to SharePoint Online and get ClientContext object..
$clientContext = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext($url)
$credentials = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SharePointOnlineCredentials($username, $securePassword)
$clientContext.Credentials = $credentials
Add-Type -Path “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\ISAPI\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll”

Write-Host “Connected to SharePoint Online site: ‘$Url'” -ForegroundColor Green
$web = $clientContext.Web
Write-Host “Connected to SharePoint Online site: ‘$web.Url'” -ForegroundColor Green
$featureguid = new-object System.Guid “52E14B6F-B1BB-4969-B89B-C4FAA56745EF”
$web.Features.Add($featureguid, $true, [Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.FeatureDefinitionScope]::None);
