Many websites are designed to be viewed on a desktop or laptop computer, rather than a mobile device. However, with the growing popularity of smartphones and tablets, many people are accessing the internet from their mobile devices. If you’re using the Chrome browser on your Android device and you want to view a website’s desktop version, there are several ways to do it.
