Turn Off Mobile Browsing in SharePoint 2010 & 2013

Author: Max Berghoff

Turn Off Mobile Browsing in SharePoint 2010With the responsive design adoption for SharePoint websites now in full swing a question pops up very often amongst SharePoint designers: “How do I turn off mobile browsing redirection available by default in SharePoint 2010?” The answer is, very simple.

Navigate to your site root under wss/VirtualDirectories and then your site port number (usually port 80) then open the folder called App_Browsers and open compat.browser file using Notepad.

\\YourSP2010ServerName\c$\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80\App_Browsers\compat.browser

Look for iPhone Safari Browser comment or any other mobile devices you see fit and change the value from true to false. Especially for iPhone Safari Browser, iPod Safari Browser and Android Safari Browser.

<capability name="isMobileDevice" value="true" />
Change to:
<capability name="isMobileDevice" value="false" />

Disable Mobile Browsing in SharePoint 2013

Same thing for SharePoint 2013. Go to your site root under wss/VirtualDirectories and then your site port number (usually port 80) then open the folder called App_Browsers and open compat.browser file using Notepad.

\\YourSP2013ServerName\c$\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80\App_Browsers\compat.browser

Look for isMobileDevice and change the value from true to false on whatever “Brands”, “Platforms” or “Browsers” you would like. There are about 28 “isMobileDevice” options. I disabled all the options just to be sure.

Disable Mobile Browsing in Office 365

In order to deactivate SharePoint Mobile feature in Office 365 sites go to Site Settings >> Manage site features. Look for “Mobile Browser View” and click Deactivate button.
