Free Download Instagram for PC: How to Use the Popular Social Media App on Your Computer

In this article, we will show you how to download and install Instagram on your PC, and how to use it to browse, message, and post photos and videos. We will also compare the pros and cons of two different methods: using the Instagram website or PC app, and using BlueStacks, an Android emulator that lets you run Instagram as if it were a mobile app.


Method 1: Using the Instagram website or PC app




The easiest way to access your Instagram desktop is to use their official website or app. You can use them to browse your feed, view stories, read and reply to messages, manage your settings, and follow new users. You can't, however, use them to upload new posts or stories.


How to browse Instagram on your desktop




To browse Instagram on your desktop, follow these steps:


  • Go to in your web browser. The official Instagram website will load.



  • Enter your Instagram account information and click Log In. This signs you in to your Instagram account, where you'll see your feed.



  • Scroll through your feed using your browser's scroll bars. You can also click through carousel posts, watch videos, like posts, or add comments.



  • Click the Explore button at the top-right corner of the page to see what's trending on Instagram.



  • Click the Heart icon at the top-right corner of the page to view all your notifications.



  • Click the Stories section on the right side of the page to view stories from the people you follow. You can also watch Instagram Live videos by clicking the Live tag next to a story.



  • Click the Direct Message button at the top-right corner of the page to send and receive messages from other users.



  • Click your profile picture at the top-right corner of the page to access your profile, settings, saved posts, and logout options.



If you'd rather use an app, you can download and install the free Instagram app from the Microsoft Store. It works exactly the same as instagram.com. To do this:


  • Open the Start menu and select Microsoft Store.



  • Click the Search text box and type in instagram.



  • Click Instagram in the results.



  • Click Get.



  • Once the app is installed, click Launch to open Instagram, or click Instagram in the start menu.



How to send messages via Instagram Direct




You can use Instagram Direct on both the website and app to send and receive messages from other users. You can also create new groups, send stickers, and share photos from your computer. The only thing you can't do is send disappearing messages, stickers, or GIFs. To send messages via Instagram Direct:


  • Click the Direct Message button at the top-right corner of the page. You'll see a two-pane messaging interface.



  • Click a conversation and start sending messages or select the New Message button to create a new conversation. You can also search for a user by typing their name or username in the search box.



  • Type your message in the text box and press Enter to send it. You can also add emojis, photos, or videos by clicking the corresponding icons.



  • To send a photo or video from your computer, click the Photo icon and select a file from your computer. You can also drag and drop a file into the text box.



  • To view a photo or video in full screen, click on it. You can also like, save, or forward it by clicking the corresponding icons.



  • To delete a message, hover over it and click the Trash icon.
