Not sure why you would actually want to do that, as 50-60% of all users are now accessing websites on their mobile devices (fact!) but if you go into Pages>Manage Pages, you will see the little mobile icon next to each page, just click on that to disable the view on mobile.

The instructions above are good for removing the pages from the navigation menu on mobile, but if you want to disable the mobile view completely, you would need to go into the mobile builder, click on settings, and choose Desktop View.

As Lynn mentioned, I highly recommend against this. If the mobile site doesn't look the way you want it to, then take the time to edit it. Having a mobile friendly website is crucial these days. It provides a better customer experience and not having one will negatively affect your SEO as Google will penalize you.

Here are tips for editing the mobile, in text instructions and videos:
