Normally Instagram doesn’t let you post to it unless you are on the mobile app or using the browser on your mobile device. ¬†It’s frustrating, because sometimes you have images on your computer and it would be annoying to transfer them to your phone to post to Instagram. ¬†Well, did you know that there’s a little trick you can do to post to Instagram directly from your desktop? ¬†Here’s what you need to do.

 

Using The Chrome Browser, Right Click On Your Screen And Select “Inspect”
