After install Manjaro Linux Gnome , gnome update to 40 automatic

Hello, I’m new to Linux and decided to install myself Manjaro Gnome when I installed I had Gnome 3, but after installing all available updates, the system abruptly switched to Gnome 40, I would like to return Gnome 3

Manjaro is a rolling release.

There are extensions and layouts to get a seemingly 3.38 behaviour though: You can try first No overview at start-up - GNOME Shell Extensions to deactivate the launch on overview by default.

This thread has got some tweaks you can try to revert back - somehow - the visual appearance:

In Layouts, you can also switch to Manjaro Legacy to get back some settings you were used to (I haven’t tried though, Gnome way is to adapt to Gnome changes).
