If you want to install and use the Instagram app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use Instagram for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: Instagram for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Instagram in the search bar and press Search. Click on Instagram application icon. A window of Instagram on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the Instagram icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: Instagram for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use Instagram for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

Instagram Software Features and Description

Instagram is a simple way to capture and share the world’s moments. Follow your friends and family to see what they’re up to, and discover accounts from all over the world that are sharing things you love. Join the community of over 1 billion people and express yourself by sharing all the moments of your day — the highlights and everything in between, too. Use Instagram to: * Post photos and videos you want to keep on your profile grid. Edit them with filters and creative tools and combine multiple clips into one video. * Browse photos and videos from people you follow in your feed. Interact with posts you care about with likes and comments. * Share multiple photos and videos (as many as you want!) to your story. Bring them to life with text, drawing tools and other creative effects. . They disappear after 24 hours and won’t appear on your profile grid or in feed. * Go live to connect with your friends in the moment. Try going live with a friend and sharing a replay to your story when you’re done. * Message your friends privately in Direct. Send them photos and videos that disappear and share content you see on Instagram. * Watch stories and live videos from the people you follow in a bar at the top of your feed. * Discover photos, videos and stories you might like and follow new accounts on the Explore tab.

    Stop adding new features all the time and instead fix bugs that have been lying around for months. I like using Instagram and not too long ago I created a second account for my art. After Instagram polls were introduced I found I could only use the poll feature on my art account and vote on them on that account. I thought the problem was fixed when I was able to use the poll feature on my main but now it’s stopped working on my art account. Why is it going back and forth? It should work on both. Please fix this. I also HATE that posts are not in chronological order. Not one of your users likes the way the posts appear on their feed. I hate seeing a post from 4 days ago before seeing someone that was posted an hour ago. And because of this my posts aren’t seen by all my followers and I get less interaction on each post. Why hasn’t the feed been switched back to chronological order at this point after so many complains?? And now the comments on each post aren’t in chronological order? The people that decides the changes that are made on new updates must be bored out of their minds at this point. I like chronological order for posts and comments because it makes sense and is easy to look at. If nothing else, at least explain how the algorithm works so your users know how to use the app efficiently. Everyone who uses Instagram would be very satisfied if the algorithm was changed to the original one.
  • Annoying Bugs and Glitches

    By _sin.istre
    I love Instagram a lot. As a content creator (I make video edits), it’s the best platform to share my content as well as talk with friends and share other things with my friends. But lately, I, as well as some of my friends, have been experiencing rather annoying bugs. In some DM chats I have, pictures and videos that I have sent have been showing up at the beginning of the chat and I am unable to make them go away. I’ve tried everything I can think of; I’ve deleted the pictures and videos from when I sent them (they went away, but came back shortly), I’ve deleted the chat and restarted with that person, I’ve logged out of my account, and I’ve even deleted Instagram and reinstalled. It’s quite annoying to have numerous pictures and videos at the beginning of my chats. Another thing I’ve noticed is that sometimes when I post a video, is freezes at certain spots, and that’s also annoying, since videos are my content and it’s hard to share your content with the world if the video is freezing in the middle. Overall, I really do love Instagram, even though I do have several complaints about it right now (as well as I’m still a bit upset since my account was deleted in November 2017 and I had to restart completely, that was annoying and uncalled for, as I did nothing to violent any terms). But please try to fix these two things, Instagram! I, as well as many others, would really appreciate it!
  • Gotten better, but there’s still some annoyances.

    We all know that Instagram is a great app...or it used to be. Changing the order of how posts show up on a user's profile has not only hurt content creators, it's forced users to physically visit a page or set up notifications for us to like our favorite blogger/photographer/whomever's content. It's frustrating. I am also growing tired of sponsored ads from shady companies (who have been stealing photos and videos from the original owners) about products and services I have no interest in, and it clogs up my feed. Instagram 'Stories' are a problem as well because 1) it's a blatant copy of Snapchat, and 2) it tracks your location (which I have no idea how it came about doing since I have Location Services for Instagram turned OFF). I am not pleased with how this once great app has now been destroyed. Listen to your users and get it together. Updated: I’m happy to be seeing more content from other Instagrammers I follow instead of the same ones and then a ton of ads. The ad amount has decreased on my end, and now I have the ability to make them disappear if I don’t wish to see them. The only thing that is ruining my Instagram experience (besides the other issues I listed in my first review) is the autoplay of videos regarding sound. When I tap a video I want to really watch, either I have to tap the sound off after I finish or have loud audio frighten me as I’m scrolling through posts. Please give me back my option to choose.
  • Needs some work

    I’ve had Instagram for years now and it’s one of my ways to engage with my friends and know what they’re up to. I like to know when they feel sad so I can cheer them up and when they feel happy so I can smile knowing they’re doing good. But ever since the new algorithm, its caught me in many situations in where I’ve lost all contact with my friends because I don’t know when they post and the other account I follow most recent posts. Yeah, of course I can turn on post notifications but why would I do that when I’ve already followed them and I should see all there posts on my feed. Why would you do that? Why would you take the perfectly fine chronological algorithm and then throw everything out the window? If it doesn’t need fixing then don’t fix it. I don’t need Instagram to tell ME what I MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN, I follow those specific accounts because that’s what I’m interested in, not follow an account just so I’m not able to see their posts. At least make a setting where you can change between the new one and the chronological one. And the reason why there’s not a lot of demand for the change is because bigger Instagram account don’t even tell the difference seeing they follow so many people. It dramatically affects smaller accounts because now you can barely even communicate with your followers and it dramatically decreases the percent of anyone to see your most recent posts. Why did you think the new algorithm was a good idea???

    So recently, I saw an option to view old bio/usernames. I really enjoyed looking at my old bios. If Instagram is able to keep track of that, can’t they keep track of all pictures ever posted w/ captions? I’d really like to see that, and if they could release an update to do so it’d make me so happy! But I don’t want other people to see it, so just like the old bio update, have it under the same area? Please do this I’m sure tons of people would love it

  • Hacking is a huge problem here

    By thelinguist12
    No account is safe here, and I am fairly confident that you people are aware of that. My account was hacked, IG offers no way of retrieving it in the form of help. You folks are reckless handling people information. You people are doing the same shoddy job over at FB. Where the heck is that “privacy” you promised your users?

  • Explore Page and IGTV Clash

    By shalena364
    I think instagram is a good app. I go there to talk to my friends and post. I like to go to my explore page quite often and look at videos. Right now however, where the first set of videos used to be, there is now IGTV videos which i am not a fan of. I have nothing against IGTV, I just do not use it. I feel as if you’re pushing IGTV on us. I want using IGTV to be a choice. Many of my friends do not use it so among the people U know it is not very popular. I would like it to go back to the regular way it was.
