How to post on Instagram from your desktop

    Launched globally in October 2021, the feature allows creators to post photos or videos via their web browser. The response to this was overwhelmingly positive(opens in a new tab), with many creators saying this was the update they’d actually been waiting for. If you count yourself amongst them, here’s a quick guide how to post on Instagram from your desktop.
