    Before the 8.1 update I was able to surf on desktop mode trough the internet.
    But know after the update I can't this makes me so angry. Just 5% of my visited sites opens in desktop the rest in mobile version. I selected under settings Desktop Mode but alot websites open in mobile format -_-+
    And Microsoft couldn't fixed the smallest issues within 2 years for example in some websites if you click the search field than the browser opens a advertising website and I have to click the back button and if I click it again than it opens again so I can't use the website because of this issue Microsoft is it so hard that the crappy advertising web site get opens on a new tap man I'm so angry with this two issues

    I noticed the same thing too, specifically with Facebook. It redirects me to the mobile version of Facebook. I just found a fix. Inside the mobile version at the bottom left there is a hyperlink for the Desktop mode. I clicked that and all is well again. Whew. Scared me for a sec.
