Used to be able with the old design unless I completely missed the button to switch or it's not available anymore?

And even on my 2nd monitor(that is in portrait mode), I can't choose which version I want to see

You tried zooming out the browser on your 2nd monitor (ctrl + Mousewheel)

We used to have a completely separate version of the site for mobile which is why you could switch back and forth. The site now uses a responsive layout so it adapts to the size of your screen. YOu can see this by shrinking the window of your browser right to left. I can see the desire for getting to the desktop version on mobile but unfortunately the site just isn;t built that way (and to be honest the way most newer sites are built they are going the same route we do). Some android browsers do allow you to change the viewport size of the window to fake its way into desktop mode but things might not be perfectly ideal there either as we send different JS for mobile devices.

Thanks for the answer but that sucks :(
