It’s easy to keep up with your favorite Instagram accounts from your phone, but it can be a bit more challenging if you don’t have access to your phone all the time. If you have a computer at home, work, or another location that you visit regularly, viewing your Instagram posts on that computer is an easy way to stay connected with your favorite users and their photos. Even if you primarily use Instagram from your phone, there might be times when you want to check-in from a computer instead. Perhaps you need to upload a photo from your desktop instead of your mobile device. Or maybe you want to browse through the explore section or look at some photo sets that are geo-tagged near where you’re accessing Instagram. Whatever the reason may be, here’s how to view archived Instagram posts on a computer.
How To View Archive Instagram Posts On A Computer
Install the Instagram Desktop App
The first thing you’ll need to do is download the Instagram desktop app. You can use the desktop app to view archived posts from any computer, not just the desktop where you installed the app. The desktop app works like the mobile app, but with a few key differences. On the desktop app, you’ll be able to view all the photos and videos you’ve ever liked on Instagram, including the ones you’ve favorited on your phone. You’ll also be able to upload photos to Instagram directly from your computer, which is not possible through the mobile app. Some third-party apps let you download your Instagram posts as well, but they’re usually not as reliable or safe as the Instagram desktop app. If you’d rather use another app, make sure to read their reviews and check out their privacy policies to ensure they’re safe.
Log in to Your Instagram Account
Before you can view your Instagram posts, you’ll need to log in to your account. Once you’re logged in, you’ll see a page that shows your archived posts. If you’re using the Instagram app on a computer, you can log in by clicking “see full profile” at the bottom of your profile. If you’re using the Instagram desktop app, log in by clicking “login” from the desktop app’s homepage.

If you’re using the Instagram app on a computer, you can view your posts by clicking on “feed” at the top of the screen. If you’re using the Instagram desktop app, click “posts” at the top of your screen to see your feed.
Change the Way Instagram Looks on a Computer
If you’re viewing your Instagram feed from a computer, you’ll notice that the layout of the app looks a bit different than it does when you’re using it on your phone. There are a few ways you can make Instagram look more like a mobile app on your computer. – Open the Instagram app on your computer and click “edit” towards the top-right corner of the screen. You’ll be able to change your desktop account’s settings, including the theme and the number of posts you see in your feed. – You can also use an app like InstaSize to resize the Instagram feed to fit your screen. – And if you want to use the same keyboard shortcuts on your computer that you do on your mobile device, you can use an android emulator like BlueStacks to make them work.

Why are some of my Instagram posts missing in the regular archive view?
If you use Instagram on a computer, there might be several reasons why some of your archived posts won’t appear in the regular archives view. For example, if you have an app like Instapaper or Pocket installed on your computer, then you might see these posts in your normal feed because they’ve been synced with those apps instead of being archived by Instagram itself. Also, if you use another service like Facebook or Twitter to manage your account and you have those services set up so that they can send notifications when new posts are posted to Instagram, then those apps will receive a notification when an updated photo appears in the regular archive view instead of being notified when it was originally posted (which is how they normally receive updates). If this happens, then they will show up as new posts in their own app instead of showing up as part of the original post’s archives section (which is how they normally appear).
