Just you don't have to stare down and tap on your phone all day long. All right? The best part about this course, it's actually 100% free to use. All you need is one simple software and what I'm gonna do is the only sure you can easily get it for free. But walk you through every single step of the process. We can literally downloaded, uploaded, install it and biscuit What buttons to press just to enable to get it going. However, if you tried to do this on your own, it can be a little tricky because I figured this out a little while back and I was just scratching my head. Not no one want to do so. I want to make the process as simple, easy and painless for you. She basically use your instagram account even on your computer. Whether you wanna post pictures you wanna like on photos you want to comment on photos you want to stalk your ex girlfriend, your ex boyfriend. You could do whatever you want. It's gonna be on your computer is gonna be good to go. Overall, it's a simple process, and I love to show you how it's done. So if you really want to know how it's done, go ahead and roll right now. I'll see you on the next video. 2. The Download: Hey, it's James Cans and Ellen, welcome to my course for I'm going to show you how you can use instagram from your computer . That's right. That means you don't have to actually tap your fingers on your phone all day long. The ability to do this is going to allow you to do just about everything. You could do normally with Instagram, whether it be posting your own pictures, commenting on pictures, liking pictures, searching through your news feed and, of course, stalking your ex girlfriend or boyfriend. We all know you love doing. Decide from that. What I'm going to do is walk you through every single step of the process. Because if you've never used this application before, which is 100% free, it can be pretty tricky. There's a lot of stuff going on, so it's not as easy as just saying like loaded up and, you know, go, go, have fun, Right? So either way, what you want to do is go to blue stacks dot com. We're gonna highlight this right here. It's just that right there and then dot com, and what you want to do is click on the download Blue stacks. But now, keep in mind, websites are always changing, so it might be different than what you're seeing right now. Either way, look for the download button. Click on that. And as you can see, it's gonna open up in a new window in this instance and keep in mind, it's also a very big file. So you're gonna need to have some type of room on your computer. I'm going to guess you have 268 megabytes either way. So with that being said, I'm just gonna let this download. Once it's done, I'm going to show you how to fire it up and basically get it running, so we'll see in the next video. 3. The Setup: all right, We are back with D downloaded file. And basically, as I said, I'm gonna walk you through each and every step, starting with double clicking it. Very difficult task. I know Now we gotta wait a little until it extracts. But either way, there's going to be a few instructions when you do open it up. Because I have downloaded it a few times before and I've tested it out and not sure why. It's only on 3%. Might be, Ah, just going crazy here. There we go. I knew something was up, okay, But either way, once that finishes, it's basically going to ask what you want to save with it. It recommends a few applications for to run at its best, which I do recommend you use. But you'll see that and about whom gets 11 seconds, maybe less. It's really moving quick. Now says it wait for it, wait for it already and we're going to be good to go. Yes, I'm not sure if you could just see that if you didn't just it. Yes. Okay, So by clicking next, I accept the terms in the license agreement. Sure. Why not? Sure. Why not. Okay, so it says blue stacks runs best with the following enabled. Sure. Why not? OK, install should be able to see the install there on the bottom. So basically what blue stacks is overall, it's kind of like having the app download section on your iPhone on your computer. Okay, so it's gonna allow you toe not only use instagram, but you can use many other applications if you wanted to. Personally, I've never used any other because I'm not huge. I'm but listens. Hit finish. Okay, let me. Ah, let me resize this and exit off some of this stuff. Okay? So you should be able to see most of that. Got it. Cool. Okay, so let's search for APS. Sometimes it takes a while to get going. Okay. You gotta sign into the Gmail account. Where is install? Is this? Nope. Skidding and check. There we go. So that was the but I was supposed to hit first. Like I said, sometimes I even forget it is a little tricky. But there was a button on the top where it said Google play or something. Or a police store. Whatever it is, the idea here is that you need to just sign in with a Gmail account. So you're gonna need one of those. So what I'm gonna do? Ah, I see that it did. Whatever. It's not a big deal. So what I'm gonna do is hit. Sign in, and then I'm just gonna enter in my Gmail account, so I'll see you after I'm done with that. Okay. Okay. So basically, I'm signed in, and then I ask for these things. I basically unchecked them because I don't care about them. Okay? And then let's go to the next screen. Awesome. So there we are, basically signed in using a Gmail account. Now, what you want to do, Instagram click on that? Does this a lot? Sit. Retry. Should be good to go. Okay. Except I don't really care about being up to date with that. Cool. Let's do it again. So this is basically kind of the play store is once you're logged into Gmail night can actually get instagram and you want to click on install. Okay? Review your account to continue installing APS on Google. Play. Sure. Thing Hit. Continue. Okay. This I just do Skip. Okay. I'm not gonna be purchasing anything if you want to purchase something eventually. I guess you could always change this, but I just do Skip, Okay? Except And let's just wait until his downloads, which looks like it's already done. Cool. Not bad. I don't mind if I dio. And would you look at that? Okay. So what I'm actually going to do here is you can log in with Facebook, or you can do sign up with email or phone number, OK? And at the bottom, it's going to say you might not be able to see it, but let me drag it up a little, okay? I already have an account log in. Okay, so we move this down. So what I'm going to do is actually ah, log in here. And then on the next video, we'll basically just walking through and show you how you can use Instagram 4. The Results: hates James cancel. And after signing, and usually what happens is you get signed in and you get moved on to the application. In this instance, it is obviously instagram and not gonna make this video too long. I just want to kind of walk you through, show you what you can do. Here is the news feed. Okay, so if you like something, double click go through. Okay. Like something cool. If you want to comment. Oops. You actually can't see this at the time. But let me do this. Okay? Still can't in second. Here we go. Nice. Okay. I don't even know this person is No. Don't want to do that. OK, there we go. Wrong, but Okay. So there you go. That's how you comment on it are right. Oops. Wrong button. Stop it. Okay, there we go. Ok, so aside from that, if you want to search for stuff you can search for on see affiliate and tags. Sure. A Philly marketing. Same thing as if you were using it on instagram. Same exact. And of course we could Oh, sorry. Wrong button. Okay, hit back. It's go back home. And, of course, probably one of the more important features. Let me make this a little bigger so you can see it. Okay. Either way, what you want to do is click on the camera and for some odd reason, is going to show me. There I am. Nice to see you. Now, you know why it's so hard for me to type sometimes. Because I got this huge. Alright, microphone and pop filter. But either way, what you want to do, Move over to the side. Okay. Click on gallery. Still having trouble seeing it? Here we go. So you click on gallery, and then you do other. All right, this is if you want to upload basically a photo from your computer. Picked from windows if you don't have windows. What's wrong with you? Just kidding. What Computer uses up to you? This is just a random example. Okay, awesome. Click on this button. Next. Whatever. Okay, Sure. Why not? Next. Okay. Caption. This is my picture. Cool, right? That's me spelling. Right. So you the way all you would do is just hit share, and then that's it. So basically have gone over all the functions. Like I said, you can like you can comment. You can stalk your ex. You can basically do it. Everyone on Instagram, you can post your photos. I haven't tested posting a video. My guess is that you can, if you have one would be the way. That's basically a tutorial about how you can use instagram from your computer now, you know. Okay, the big secret is out, and ah, I apologize. In case if it was too simple for you, next time will make it much more complicated.
