If this doesn’t work or you permanently want to open desktop sites for all sites then

  • Go to Debug( location depends on devices and OS version but generally its in developer mode)
  • Change the UAString or User Agent String within the app settings to reflect a desktop browser.

For iphone users,

This should work for iphone users too.

Generally first method is quite enough and reliable but for some reasons if first method doesn’t work then do try second one.
