Yes, I bought one like that recently.
It was a Sharp ELW535X which displays maths expressions on multiple lines (by default). Therefore if I calculate 2/3= it gives me a fraction.
To get decimal, I pressed
setup
2:editor
1:line
and it the gave me 0.666666666 as answer.
However, every calculator is made differently, so you'll need to post the model of your calculator in order that someone could help you.

If it is the Casio fx83ES (very popular in schools) and similar which also does this, press the S<>D key when the fraction is in the display and this will convert the fraction to a decimal.
