    Hello everyone

    I've registered in this forum just to post this piece of information.
    I had problems when I tried to view Gmail on android Internet browser in the standard desktop view, because it kept redirecting me back to the mobile view.

    So the way that worked for me to view Gmail in standard view was to write down this link below, and bookmark it (you can copy and paste it):
    https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?ui=2#inbox

    The advantages of the standard view is that it enables you to send an email to a group by writing down the group's name in the "to, cc, or bcc" section, a feature which is not available in the normal Gmail app.

    Hope you find it useful

    If you use Chrome, you can hit Settings and scroll down and check "Request desktop site".

    Thanks for your reply, grenefroggie.
    I am using chrome, and I've already tried the method you've mentioned; however it did not work for me. When I had tried it (choosing the desktop view), it goes directly to the "HTML view" which also does not have the feature of sending emails to a group, and does not go to the standard view. And when I had tried to go to the "standard view" it redirected me to the mobile view again.

    The link was the thing that made it work.

    Try using a different browser. I tried it using Dolphin browser and it displayed the proper web view of Gmail.
