  • When you go on Instagram from a computer,

  • you can view posts, stories, and even follow others.

  • But you may have noticed

  • the lack of the direct-messages feature.

  • Well, good news!

  • There's actually a way to do it.

  • Here's how to DM on Instagram from your computer.

  • First you will need to configure your browser

  • to replicate a smartphone.

  • If you're on Safari, go on

  • and log into your account.

  • Click on Safari in the menu bar, go to "Preferences,"

  • and then check "Show Develop menu in menu bar."

  • Click on "Develop" in the menu bar, then "User Agent,"

  • and look for "Safari - the latest version of iOS - iPhone."

  • This will change the appearance of Safari

  • to replicate the browser of an iPhone.

  • For Google Chrome, log in on

  • and right-click anywhere on the screen.

  • Go to "Inspect,"

  • and then click on the "toggle device toolbar" button.

  • Refresh the page and exit out of the inspection window.

  • Once your browser is configured, the direct-messages

  • shortcut will appear on the upper-right corner.

  • Like the mobile version, you can read and reply

  • to your previous messages, attach pictures,

  • or start a new conversation by clicking the plus sign.

  • Did you know you can post in Instagram from the web as well?

  • Once your browser is configured, you can post a picture

  • by clicking the plus symbol and uploading an image

  • from your computer.
