How to upload & post photos using the Windows 10 PC Instagram App.
In order to upload, edit, and share photos on Instagram Windows 10 users currently need to use a touchscreen PC. The same features available on the Instagram browser app can be used by users without a touchscreen PC as well (view photos, send messages, etc). You can directly post to Instagram from Windows 10 even if you don’t have a touchscreen PC by using a scheduling tool like Hopper HQ.
In the case of a touchscreen Windows 10 PC, a user can upload, edit, and post photos in the same way he or she would do it on the Instagram mobile application. If you click the ‘camera’ icon from the menu, you can choose whether you would like to upload a picture or video from your gallery, or whether you would like to take a new one. After you have clicked ‘next’, you will go to the editing suite where you can make your wizardry changes and then you can share your post with the world!
