  1. Microsoft store Instagram app


    Hi,


    I have downloaded the instagram app in my pc through the microsoft store. For a few months it ran properly but after that, whenever i view stories the stories are darkened and i cannot see anything excpet a few pixels. This is not only with the stories this happens with the posts and as well as the profile pictures of all the users. Why is this happening?

    :)

  4. Microsoft store Instagram app

    Instagram app on windows 10

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand your concern, I suggest you to check for updates from the Microsoft Store and update Instagram application. Refer the following article on
    Check updates for apps and games from Microsoft Store
    for more information.

    If the issue persists, refer the article on
    Fix problems with apps from Microsoft Store
    and follow the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the article.

    If you are still facing the same issue, as this is an in-app issue, I suggest you to contact
    Instagram support, where you will find professional who are dedicated to handle in-app issues on Instagram.

    Hope it helps.
