    Using Instagram on a computer has only been possible for a short time. Previously, the social network was only available through the dedicated application. But that was before ! Now you can do everything from your PC: like, comment and share photos and videos. With this tutorial dedicated to teaching you how to manage your Instagram account, we show you how to use the social network on a computer in a few clicks!


    Use Instagram on a computer without a specific extension

    1. Once your web browser is open, go to Instagram's official website here. Log in by entering your credentials, then make a right click And click Inspect. To go faster, you can also do CRTL+Maj+I.


    2. A pane opens on the right of your screen. Click on the small icon next to the Elements tab.

    3. In the bar that appears at the top, click on phone name of your choice. Thus, your computer will program itself to make Instagram appear as if it were on mobile, and not on PC or Mac.
