Google Chrome is by far the most popular web browser in the world. With several highly user-friendly features like incognito mode and the ability to pin tabs and more, it stands out of the rest, doesn’t it?
Among so many impressive features that Chrome for Android has got, the one I really like most is the ability to switch to desktop version of any website. Though mobile version of web pages loads a bit faster, at times they display contents improperly or provide way less options than the desktop version.
Fortunately, it’s quite simple to move to desktop version of any website in Chrome. Here is how it works:
How to Request Desktop Version of Website in Chrome on Android Phone
Step #1. First off, you have to launch Chrome on your Android smartphone.
Step #2. Next, you need to tap on the menu icon (three dots) from the top right corner.
Step #3. Now, you will have to check the box next to Request desktop site. That’s it! The desktop version of the site will load now.
At any time, if you want to switch back to the mobile version of the site, you need to follow all the steps mentioned below and uncheck the box in the end.
Some web pages provide a link to let you switch to the desktop version. The link is generally given somewhere at the bottom of the page. You can check for the links such as, “non-mobile”, “classic”, “full site” or “normal page”.
Chrome is not just a top web browser on Android but also iOS devices. It has vastly improved in recent times. The only drawback is that it consumes a bit more battery than others. Hopefully, Google fixes this issue for the better very soon.
