Yeah, yeah, I know. The new layout is awful. A lot of people are complaining, but still, Adobe doesn't care and won't give its paying customers a choice. Well, I don't care either. I'll just keep using the old version with a normal Crop Tool and stuff like that, and I suggest you (especially if you have to crop images by the hundreds) do that, too. Fortunately, you can rollback Camera Raw to the old version in no time.
What I haven't realized until recently is that people don't know how to roll back. One acquaintance of mine even canceled their Photoshop subscription: that's how enraged they were with the new Camera Raw. There's no need to that; there's a way back.
Here's the link. Just download and install an old version (12.2.1 or earlier), and you'll be fine. Make sure you use an older version of Bridge as well — I've got Bridge 2020 and it works.
