Mobile view

Right I'm probably being really thick here, but how the hell do you go from the desktop view back to the mobile view?

When you're on the mobile version there is a big tab at the bottom to switch to the desktop version. Now I'm on the desktop version I can't for the life of me figure out how to switch back

I've had the same problem in the past and it's a real pita, fortunately it reverted back on its own, eventually, but I couldn't find any official way to revert back. There's no reciprocal link to mob view, deleting website data did nothing and selecting desktop via the browser menu and then back was similarly useless, so if anyone knows of an effective way I'd also be interested.

On my Android in the top right corner I have 3 dots that open a menu in which I can tick "request desktop site". But even though I have not ticked it I still have the desktop version.

Or maybe I'm not in the desktop version as at the bottom I have the "display desktop site" option.

I doubt you're in "desktop" if you have to link at the bottom, once the link is used and desktop activated the link disappears, but it isn't replaced by a reciprocal "mobile" link.

If desktop is selected via the link the shortcut still appears in settings (3 dots top right) but it really doesn't do anything. any

I've managed to return to mobile view by deleting cookies, unfortunately it doesn't allow for individual cookies, it's all our nothing, which is a bit drastic, but it works.

Desk Top View world be useful if I could jump in and out when I want, but getting stuck and the problem reverting back makes it more trouble than it's worth

If you're still stuck in DTV just delete your cookies and restart the browser!

How do I delete cookies?
Ive just tried closing the browser and then deleting my Internet history but that didn't work.
I'd much rather the mods picked up on this and sorted it properly.

Deleting Cookies: Browsers will vary but "Settings / Privacy / Delete Personal Data" (or similar) and delete everything ie History, Cache, Cookies etc then restart the browser.

The link (or lack of) is part of the forum programming so I can't see the mods doing anything!
