Hi,
It's long and painful process. It's like gutting a shark.
You have to disarm all responsive CSS styles.

Sorry, I am not Santa Claus to help you with this.

What are your template that can be modified to for desktop view only?
jcamo, do you depend on search traffic from Google? Is yes, then a responsive website that is mobile friendly is critical.

From Google: https://developers.google.com/search/mobile-sites/

If you don;lt need search traffic then switch to a template that is not responsive.

Curious, why do you want a desktop only template?

NOTE: Any good template developer for Joomla 3/4 will only make fully resp[onsive and mobile-friendly templates/themes.

About Joomla 4:
It is getting updates to better support response mobile-friendly web design. Even the back end admin section in Joomla 4 will be responsive so it will be mobile-friendly.

The bad news for you is that a mobile-friendly responsive website is a new standard for all websites that want to be Google/search engine friendly.

Sometimes it is necessary to do this for some technical pages. And this is not surprising. If you have not encountered this - this does not mean that this is a strange desire. ;)

This is pretty easy to do, but you need css knowledge. If you want to do this for some page by, you should rename the template, and install it in joomla. How to rename a template, you can read in the Helix documentation.
First step - remove from the bootstrap.min.css all media queries but one that you need.
Step two - write some custom styles for the template, such as width and static viewport. You can use the custom.css file for this.
@Pavel ,

I never said it was strange or sometimes desire.

That is why I first stated that if you do not need it to be search engine-friendly. If the pages will not be indexed by the search engine then go for it.

I was only making sure they knew the search engine impact.

That is why I never said that should Nnopty do it. There are times when you would need a desktop only/non-response page. I have had the need over 5 years ago for an intranet (non-public site) to be desktop only.

That is why I was curious about what situation needed a desktop only version.

5 years ago this could be OK, but now... 99% of users would browse intranet website from their phones first.
So honesty it doesn't make sense to be desktop only.
