How to Upload Photos, Videos, and Stories on Instagram via PC or Laptop


1. Upload photos, videos, and IG Story via Google Chrome


The first way is to use Google Chrome, I assume you already have this browser on a laptop, if not please download and install it first.

Then open Google Chrome, then go to the website instagram.com and log in with the account that you have.

Go to the profile page, you will see your account with the web version of Instagram. There are no facilities or upload buttons like apps on smartphones. To bring up the upload button we can do a little trick.

You do this by pressing the CTRL + Shift + i

The console panel will appear on the right. There will appear a lot of tabs and menus, as well as the website source code. But fear not, we will not touch the codes at all.

All you need to click is the device toolbar button to change the display to a mobile display. See the following picture:


After the button is clicked, the Instagram webpage will change to a mobile view. But until here we still can't post because the upload button like in the app hasn't appeared yet.

The next step is to look at the top bar. Click on the responsive menu, then change to the desired device or smartphone. In this tutorial I changed it to iPhone X.


After the device changes to iPhone X, refresh the browser by pressing the F5 key.

Boom You will see a + button to upload photos and videos have appeared. Exactly how it looks like on a smartphone.


To post or upload photos to IG via this laptop the same way as from a smartphone. Just click the + button then select the file you want to upload, fill in the caption, tag, etc.

To upload IG Story, it's the same method as on the cellphone, you just click the home button. Then click Your story in the upper left corner. Later it will directly lead to file explorer. Select the file you want to be IG story and click open.
