AT a remote hotel I was asked to revert to a more simplified version of Yahoo. How do I reverse that?

Posted

I have a very simple version of Yahoo mail and would like to revert back to my original with all the bells and whistles. I was asked to do this when at a remote hotel and the internet connection was poor. Now I 'd like to reverse this.
