Setting WebView to view Desktop Site and Not Mobile Site

I've done quite a lot of research on Stack Overflow and a lot of Google research but nothing I find is actually working out for me. I want the site to view the desktop site instead of the mobile site. How do I do this? I want it to directly go to the Desktop site.

WebView myWebView = (WebView) findViewById(;

Change the user agent of webview

 String newUA="Foo/"; // Change this to desired UA


 String newUA= "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0";
