Turn On Lightning Experience (Previously Released Critical Update)
As mentioned in the Spring ’19 release, Salesforce turns on Lightning Experience on a rolling basis in Winter '20 to empower users to move faster, do more, and be more productive. Users still have access to Salesforce Classic after Lightning Experience is turned on. Switching to Lightning Experience directly benefits everyone, from business leaders and users to IT teams. The new user interface improves user efficiency and productivity. And you get the power of the Lightning Platform at your fingertips, making it easy and flexible to align the UI with your processes, to keep up with changes in your business, and to improve your company’s bottom line.

Looking for help moving your org from Salesforce Classic to Lightning Experience? The Lightning Experience Transition Assistant is your central hub for all the recommended activities, tools, and resources for a successful transition. The Transition Assistant replaces the Lightning Experience Migration Assistant. The latest version of the Transition Assistant has streamlined navigation and some new and reorganized steps.
Turn On Lightning Experience and Don’t Look Back
As of October 12, 2019, you can’t turn off Lightning Experience after it’s been turned on. The Turn on Lightning Experience toggle is grayed out in the Lightning Experience Transition Assistant. You and your users can still switch between Salesforce Classic and Lightning Experience.
