How to switch back to the previous version of Google Maps?

Ever since the update to the latest version of Google Maps, my laptop chugs along like it's a 10 year old computer when I use it. Is there a way to revert to the older version that is less resource intensive?


Open Google Maps then click on the ? button in the lower right hand corner. Select "Return to classic Google Maps." If you want to permanently switch back, after this step you will need to select "Yes" in the notification bar that pops up, then follow the instructions on how to revert to the old version.
