Enable it in the Settings and then cycle through the screens with the handlebar or page up page down buttons on the keyboard

also having the same issue...

page up/page down keys do not work. all i see is a bird's eye view. i'm simply wanting to see the elevation profile, progress there, and other metrics.

First thing, what software version are you on?.
The latest version is slightly 'odd' in the GPS mode, they have obviously got close to getting a 3D version working, and have offered it in the new version though it doesn't yet work, and does cause some oddities if selected.
So, set the map view to 2D (which is working).

Then second question. Are you sure there is a StreetView for the route you are trying to ride?.

Have you exited the software and come back in?. I've found that some of the configuration changes do not always work, till the software is restarted.

Page up/down, switches you through the screen modes, but only for the ones that are enabled/available.
Enter selects the menu.
Up/Down arrow, select the elements in a menu.

What are you actually trying to do?. Streetview is only available for an already recorded ride. Free riding only works on the map. You can draw a ride in with the 'new' option (GPS Ride), on the main menu, but this then doesn't include altitude data. So record this, then exit the software, and use an external tool to add altitude data, then ride this.
