Have you tried to mate it to one of the planes (top, front, right)(parallel, perpendicual, or degree) whatever fits your wishes?

I know, if I do it from start over I can get what I need. But I already made it. I don't wanna do it again from start. So is there any way that I can change Coordinate system to get desired view as front view?

You don't have start over. You just have mate one of the surfaceses to one of the planes. Which ever fits your need.

You may have a relation you have to break for it to work. But it should not be a problem
