How to Post an Instagram Story from PC/Laptop in 2020

If we talk about the best photo-sharing platform, Instagram will be the first to strike our mind. Instagram is a free photo & video sharing app owned by Facebook. As of now, Instagram has over 1 billion active monthly users.

Apart from photo & video sharing, Instagram offers many other features like Reels, IGTV, Stories, etc. Out of all Instagram features, the stories seems to be the most popular one. From celebrities to small businesses, everybody seems to utilize Instagram stories to get a message out.

However, Instagram is a mobile-centric social network, and this is why lots of features were limited only to mobile apps. For example, Instagram doesn’t allow you to post pictures, videos, reels, stories, etc. from the desktop. Instagram has set up this system to encourage the use of mobile apps.

Although Instagram doesn’t allow users to post stories from the desktop, you can employ a little browser trick to get your story posted on the photo-sharing platform.
