How to upload & post photos using the Windows 10 PC Instagram App.
Currently, only users with a touchscreen PC can upload, edit & post photos on Instagram Windows 10. Users without a touchscreen PC can use the same features available on the Instagram browser app (view photos, send messages, etc). Those without a touchscreen PC can use a scheduling tool like Hopper HQ to post directly to Instagram from Windows 10.
For users with a touchscreen Windows 10 PC, you can upload, edit and post photos in the same way you would on the Instagram mobile app. Simply click the ‘camera’ icon from the menu, then select whether you’re posting from your gallery or taking a new photo or video.
