    Hey everyone!

    Asking this for a very non-techie friend who lives as far away from me as is possible in the continental United States.

    She had a picture posted on her Facebook page that was from Instagram. She could see the picture just fine on her page, but when she clicked on the picture or the link below the picture, it took her to Instagram's home page. She could not get to the actual page hosting the picture.

    She is using Windows Vista, IE8, desktop.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    Right click on the picture, click on copy image from the dropdown menu. She can then paste the picture to a file.

    Thanks Cholly. But she doesn't want to keep or even "open" the picture. She just wants to view it on Instagram so she can see it full size and read the comments that are associated with it.

    Oops - sorry, I misunderstood. I'm not a user of Instagram and my Facebook knowledge is extremely limited.

    I don't use Instagram either. But I can click on the posted picture from Facebook and actually get to the hosting page on Instagram. She can't, which is very weird.
