Question Make Opera Mini 5 show webpages in desktop style?

Does anyone know if there is a reg edit to make Opera Mini 5 show webpages in desktop mode instead of mobile mode?

For example, it keeps going to www.fark.com/pda when I just want www.fark.com

Anyone have any idea? I know I can use Mobile 10, and I have been, but Mini 5 is much faster.

Probably a stupid question but did you go to settings and make sure mobile view is unchecked?

Yes, it's unchecked. Like I said, when I tried to go to fark.com, it kept putting fark.com/pda instead of just fark.com

I think it's the websites doing the re-direction to their mobile version (when a mobile browser is detected). Same thing happens when you go to cnn.com, a weird international mobile version is displayed.

Wirelessly posted (Sprint Touch Pro 2: Opera/9.50 (Windows NT 5.1; U; en) Sprint Touch Pro 2)

i had this same problem on my sprint opera 9.5. if i typed in www.website.com, it automatically redirected me to the mobile version of the site. you need to change the "custom user-agent" to:
Opera/9.50 (Windows NT 5.1; U; en) Sprint Touch Pro 2

you can change the part that says "sprint touch pro 2". when you change this, it tricks the website into thinking you are on a computer. hope this helps, let me know if you need more help.

i dont know how to change the custom user agent on mini, but on opera mobile you type "opera:config" into the address bar, scroll down to "custom user-agent" and type in what i said above.

Yes, I have the same problem when I go to CNN.COM
and it's frustrating when you can't even figure out what the hell is going on.
