So, you are checking your Instagram account and want to save a shared photo (public or private) on your Windows desktop? To save Instagram pictures on PC using Google Chrome, do as follows:
1. Open the Instagram post you want to save the photo
2. Right click on the shared photo, and click on the Inspect option to open the inspect elements window.
3. As you can see, a few lines are highlighted in Gray, and what you need to do is click on the small triangle, which is right above these highlighted lines, to expand it
4. And then the link to your Instagram photo appears, and you just need to right click on the link, hit the Open Link in a New Tab option, and then get the JPG link or just save it on your computer.
Note that, if you capture the screen (using Snipping Tools or the Print Screen Button), to save Instagram photos on PC, you'll lose the quality of the saved picture. But if you save Instagram photos on PC using this method, you'll save them in their actual size and high quality.
