Instagram has been designed as a social media channel just for use on your mobile device. So the bad thing is, You can see a “+” button only on your mobile application which allows you to upload stories on Instagram through your mobile phone.
So if you have something on your PC and you want to post it on Instagram as a story, you need to transfer the file to your mobile phone and then you can post it on your Instagram as Instagram doesn’t allow you to post from your web version.
Lets make it easy for you to post on Instagram from you PC!
Simply download the Desktop version of Instagram here.
When download is completed, move to “Downloads” folder, right-click the application and click “Run as Administrator”
