A beginner’s guide to Instagram, the wildly popular photo-sharing app with over a billion users
1. What is instagram?
Instagram, as a Facebook product. Is one specific platform where people can meet other people. The only difference being it deals with images more than it does with words. As the user base has been on a continuous rise. The demand for a desktop application for Windows has become a popular request. While it might not be exactly what many hoped for. Instagram can now be installed as a desktop app from Microsoft Store.
2. More of a shell and not a full-fledged app
If you were expecting an independently-developed application with a unique interface or structure, you’re about to be disappointed.
Why? The application is more of a shell for the online service. Still, there are many advantages to using the desktop application in this form. Mainly having to deal with browser space gain or ease-of-access. The application works well and can also be molded to fit in any corner of your desktop. The advantage here is the content displayed will also be resized to fit the space of your adjusted window.
3. You’ll feel right at home with this app
The best part about having integrated the online application into a desktop form has to do with all the menus and settings. Basically, all the elements you’ve already come to know in the browser app will be placed in the same spot or area, meaning there really is no need for you to adapt to any new arrangement schemes. Chat, post photos, edit settings, and preferences just as you would while being logged to the service in your browser.

While having an Instagram desktop application does have many advantages, the lazy idea behind it, in this case, doesn’t actually do it justice. You’ll end up dealing with the same experience, the only actual change being one less tab in your browser, crowding your workspace.
