There are many third party apps and official FB creator studio too that lets you post on the visual marketing platform from desktop. But, in this tutorial, I’m going to share a simple tip using which you can use Instagram exactly the same way on laptop/desktop as you use on Mobile devices.

Technique 1: FB creator studio and third party scheduling apps.

In this technique, you can opt for third party apps like Buffer or use the official FB Creator studio to post on Instagram.

Drawback: One needs a business account. For personal and private accounts there is no option to post. Moreover, editing on Instagram as done on mobile is not possible.

Technique 2: Switch to mobile version

Here is the exact step-by-step technique:

Step 1: Login to your Instagram account from your desktop/laptop.

Step 2: Right click anywhere on the screen (not on the posts) or press CTRL+SHIFT+I (Shortcut for Inspect). Now, it will open the mobile version.
