    Find and press the Instagram tile to open the application.
    It has a navy blue background with a camera in the middle. In this example, it is on the bottom of the home screen. If the Instagram tile is not pinned to the home screen, swipe left and find it in the apps menu. We now want to demonstrate how to change our username. Perhaps we've had a change of heart, we've gotten bored of our username, or we're being followed by someone we don't want to be, this is a way of getting a new identity.

    Tap on the current username to bring up the keyboard.
    Type in the preferred username, then press down on the checkmark at the bottom when you're happy with it. The application will go back to the 'you' page, which means it has been accepted. If we enter a username that is already taken, it will tell us and ask us to input another choice.
