UPDATE: We have recently summarised a number of options for posting to Instagram from PC and Mac and compiled the info – check it out!
Rejoice, Instagram is now available for Windows 10. We’ve compiled an essential guide on how to download and install the Instagram Windows 10 app. We’ll also go through how to upload, edit and post photos straight to Instagram from Windows 10. Currently only those on the latest operating system have access to the app, that also doesn’t include Xbox or Hololens users – but there’s rumours that may change.
How to Download and Install Instagram Windows 10:
- Open the Microsoft Store app
- Search for the Instagram app
- Click ‘Get’ and download
- Once installed, open the app and login
- And you’re in! Enjoy Instagram on your Windows 10 desktop
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. After that, click ‘next’ to go to the editing suite, make your wizardry changes and share your post with the world!
