Anyone know an easy way to make Chrome always open in desktop mode?

I did a search and it looks difficult to me. I use my tablet primarily for surfing the web and watching videos but I really prefer the Chrome desktop mode. If it can't be done I think this becomes a serious drawback for using the S7 Plus.

Using adb is not complicated at all and just requires that you follow the instructions.

Do these steps work for you?

Hey folks. Thanks for the suggestions but I don't even know what ADB is. I was hoping there would be some app to download and install. With any luck Google will make a change in Android 11 if they ever want to truly compete with Apple in the tablet business.
