    Find and tap the Store tile to open the Microsoft Store application
    .
    The 'Store' tile has a blue background, with the Store symbol in white on it. The Store symbol is a white shopping bag with the Microsoft logo on it. The image on the tile will often change to that of apps that are currently popular in the Microsoft Store, so it will not always be the same image. If the Store application is not pinned to the home screen, swipe from right to left to view the apps menu. Find and tap 'Store' in the Apps menu to open the Microsoft Store.

Wait a few minutes for the application to be downloaded and installed on the phone. Once the app has finished installing, continue the steps below to set up the Instagram application.

    Instagram will open to the sign-in screen
    .
    There will be two options to register for a new Instagram account. Tap 'Register with Facebook' to register using a Facebook account, or tap 'Register with Email' to register using an email account. Registering using a Facebook account shortens the process, as information from the Facebook account will be used to create the new Instagram profile. In addition, the Facebook and Instagram accounts will be linked, meaning we will not have a separate login username and password for Instagram, and will be able to use our Facebook login information to login to Instagram. When registering with an email account, we will need to create a new Instagram username and password, and provide an email address. In this example, we will register with an email address.

Questions and Answers

Why am I getting 'couldn't refresh feed' when I try to load?

I have been using Instagram Beta now for several months. A few days ago, I started experiencing a problem when I try to load my feed. Sometimes, it will load the feed when I tap the 'home' icon but it pops the 'couldn't refresh feed' message. The major problem is on my 'profile' icon - it is completely not loading. When I go to my profile, I can see my bio but I can't see any of my posts. I can't even comment back when someone leaves a comment.
