Turn off mobile version?

Is there any way to default to the desktop version of pages, the mobile version does not provide me with the information I'm looking for, almost ever. I just want a list of movies and tv shows an actor has been in, not a picture of the 5 most popular or recent ones!!!!

At the bottom of the page, you have the option to activate desktop version. In order to avoid the mobile completely, I would copy the url of the desktop version and add it to my favorites. I have done this as the mobile version doesn't work for me at all neither.


Since the new homepage is terrible for anyone trying to find anything useful, I would recommend that you enter the site through another adress like your user page, the poll page www.imdb.com/poll/ or your favorite actor, from there you can navigate easily.

Mobile version is pointless and entering via a different link still sends you to t h e mobile version.
What happened to the activate desktop version? Why did they mess with a good thing

To see data pages in the full version, try using a mobile browser with a setting to always request the desktop website.

Safari on iPhone has this (in the settings app) and so does Opera Mini.

I only get the desktop version and don't like to zoom in and out all the time. I prefer scrolling the mobile version over the app because my link parameters are saved and even can't find all filters in the app. The entries I get in mobile view but not the search results.  

Thank you for your help
