Toggling mobile/desktop version of site on a mobile device

    I was browsing HP on my mobile device and clicked the desktop function to see how it looked on my phone.  HELP!  I can't find a way to revert back to mobile.  I restarted the phone, powered it off completely and now HP is totally in desktop mode on my phone.

      If you used the site menu to select desktop, then there is also an option at the bottom of the page in the footer on the desktop site on mobile devices to select the mobile site.

      Scroll all the way down the page to the bottom right and you should see "mobile site" there.

      If you selected the desktop version using the option in your mobile browser, then you should be able to toggle this setting.
      See the "Request Desktop Site" section here for how to do so with Chrome.

    I'll see what I can figure out, but why would HP give these different options, then not be able to get back to mobile function.  Shouldn't it have a 'mobile' button to revert back?  Sorry if I sound so tech challenged, but it just seemed obvious to me that there would be an easy way to get back to mobile.

    EDIT:  I tried deselecting 'desktop' on the Chrome browser menu and nothing changed.

          I clarified it a bit more in that same post as there are different ways to select and deselect the version to display and as you have witnessed, using the browser setting does not override the site menu selection.
