It's not exactly clear what you did, but this is my guess.

1. You created a branch from r291 and checked the box to switch to the
new branch, so your working copy reflected the new branch.
2. You fixed the bug and committed on the branch.
3. You want to leave the branch as-is and bring your working copy back
to the HEAD of trunk.

If this is the case, then yes 'Switch' is exactly what you want. It is
used to change a working copy from one branch to another.
