I hate the Facebook messsenger app, so I ditched it. However, my current work-around is:

  1. Open the messages tab on m.facebook.com
  2. Wait for Play store to load
  3. Close, enable desktop mode 4, Go to the Messages tab again.

As per the title, how can I make Particular sites I.e. Facebook load desktop site by default (in chrome)?

Note: I only want Facebook affected. Other sites are fine.

Edit: No root, please. I don't have access to the stuff to root, and I just don't want to. Also, I want this for Facebook Only, which excludes Beeshyams related question. Sorry Beetroot!

  • +1. Please see the first approach -it's for Unrooted Devices too ! But the key difference is you want it for a specific site. A cumbersome approach could be using that XDA method and then using Tasker to make FB specific changes?

  • It seems like upcoming Chrome versions will have such a feature: Chrome for Android will soon add a permanent desktop mode toggle

Download & install this app "User Agent for Google Chrome" and after you opened it select "chrome desktop" it will now open sites in desktop mode, you can switch back to default... [requires root]


  • Two issues A) I'm not rooting and B) I only want particular sites affected. I'll include that in the Q.
