It is easy to revert to the old settings, as you must have gathered by this stage.

If you want emacs to copy the mouse selection to the windows clipboard and emacs kill-ring, turn on mouse-drag-copy-region.

If you want emacs to insert the windows clipboard/kill-ring on mouse-2, do (global-set-key [mouse-2] 'mouse-yank-at-click)

I already suggested to make the latter a boolean customisation so
that it can be more easily reverted again than by doing that.

That is not necessarily true (unless you want emacs to continue to act weirdly on w32, and believe me I get that you yourself do want that).
I did respond to Eli on that point.
