How To Set Instagram photos in Windows 8 lock screen:
The app is so simple and easy that it takes just a few moments to do all the settings. The first thing that you get in the app is the app’s notification asking you to connect to Instagram account first. You’ll get a login button at the bottom right side of the screen, you can also use the Windows 8 Settings charm for the same.
Once you are through that step, you’ll get some really good-looking photos. These are the most popular photos in Instagram, and by default they’ll be the photos that you’ll get in the lock screen. You can keep them just the way they are, or you change them with the ones that you posted in Instagram, photos you liked, or photos from your feeds.
By setting the source of photos as your feeds, you can actually see every new single photo feed right from your Windows 8 lock screen. This is a pretty good feature and makes the app more useful. However, to view the photos and comment on them, you have to open the website or the Instagram app installed in your Windows 8 devices. That is, the app is just for viewing Instagram photos into lock screen. Still its pretty useful and handy. The app has a really good UI, and all you have to do is change the settings.
The app gives enough settings options and doesn’t restricts you to only the popular photos. You can change the source of photo by clicking on the Settings button in the screen. This opens up a flyout at the right of screen, containing drop down list to change the updating period time, Logout, and Instagram Settings button.
Clicking on Settings button opens a new screen from where you can choose the source.
