In such a way, it makes good sense that Instagram doesn't want you posting properly edited photos from your computer system. The application was designed to have you share instant images and also video of your daily life.
If you login to Instagram on a browser, you'll have the ability to scroll through your feed as well as like every one of your pals' images. You can likewise access your alerts as well as the explore tab. Yet there's no choice for you to publish pictures or view Instagram tales. Until now.
Because whatever has its loopholes, there are several ways you could still utilize Instagram on your Windows PC or Mac as if you were utilizing it on your smartphone.

To Publish Photos

This will immediately switch your page to mobile sight, which grants access to the electronic camera upload switch.
To View Stories

The Chrome extension's name is as simple as it is to use it-- as well as it's cost-free. You just should set up Chrome IG Tale and also the next time you log into your Instagram account via Chrome, you'll see all your good friends' tales appear at the very top.
