Switch between Facebook Lite & Regular [official way]


We have seen 5 ways to disable Facebook Lite version. However, for few users even those 5 ways did not work to switch from Facebook Lite to Facebook Regular. Looks like, Facebook finally saw tears of Facebook users frustrated at not being able to switch back to Facebook regular from lite verion. Here is official way to switch to regular version, if you are still stuck in Facebook lite version:

Switch to Facebook Regular from Lite version

1. Goto Facebook.com and login into your account.

2. Click on “Settings” icon next to search box (as seen in screenshot).


3. Then click “Default Site” option or directly go to this URL http://lite.facebook.com/settings/defaultsite/

4. Select Facebook Regular and click Save button.


Note: you will only see above options while using Facebook Lite. Alternatively, if you want to make quick switch from Regular Facebook to Lite version, just use URL http://lite.facebook.com and login into Facebook account. Above procedure ensure easy switching between regular and lite Facebook versions – take your pick!



  1. My facebook regular account changed to an ads account can anybody help me please

    YOU ARE THE MAN!!!! :D

  3. thanks a ton.. i was able to get out of “lite”.

  4. I was getting an empty page. So I think you could update the post (since google finds you up on the result for this issue) with a permalink to http://lite.facebook.com/settings/defaultsite/

    This way someone with trouble could just click on the deeplink to the settings page.

    When you go to the settings link, at the bottom of the page there is a feedback link. In that link also there is an option to switch back to the normal facebook. It worked for me. Try it out. :) . It was a relief to reset it.

    It Worked For Me.

  12. Typing facebook.com directs to lite.facebook.com, but the page comes up blank

  13. This doesn’t help in the instance I’m in:
    LITE was set as default.
    Typing facebook.com directs to lite.facebook.com, but the page comes up blank.
    There is NO way to access settings for LITE vs REGULAR from within regular facebook.
    (I get to regular facebook by surfing to a fan page – which only works in REGULAR.)
    However, when I try to read mail or anything, it goes back to LITE -which, as stated, doesn’t display for whatever reason.

  14. followed the procedure but its not happening….plz help how to do it its not comeing…………

  15. It worked finally….

  16. When you go to the settings link, at the bottom of the page there is a feedback link. In that link also there is an option to switch back to the normal facebook. It worked for me. Try it out. :). It was a relief to reset it.
