    Can you switch between touch and desktop version of a site

    Hi guys
    I want to know how to switch within (for example Facebook) how to switch to standard version of the site.
    Not the desktop. Everytime I press that it takes me to standard desktop and the websites aren't open.
    I want to be on touch and then with a press switch to normal desktop mode of the actual site
