I setup a new web server using Windows Server 2012 R2.

When I go to the server manager, the screen is so different than what I'm used to, I can't find what actually is installed. For instance, this site's interface looks like this:

old look
versus on the older system, it looked like this:

Old look
Is there a way to change this back to the other style? or install that version instead of this "windows 8" version?

How can I find my role services?

thanks!

Can't change it back.  Its just the way it is...  Roles and Features can be found under the "Manage" link in the upper right corner.

"Server Manager" or also "Computer Management" still exists, it can be found on the Start screen (right-click on the extreme lower left corner after a small pop-up appears).  You can pin it to the task bar to find is easier in the future.
