Layoutify: Improved Layout for Instagram

CRX id


Description from extension meta

The layout of Instagram.com is not optimized for the desktop. This extension improves this.

Image from store Layoutify: Improved Layout for Instagram
Description from store The default Instagram.com layout is not optimized for the desktop. This extension improves the design. It also lets you view your saved ("Collections") and liked images on the web. To view them, click the 3-dots menu on the top right. Next, as Instagram is optimized for phones, they never load the highest quality and prevent the right click download of images. This extension changes that and lets you save the highest quality using right click. My extension does not collect any private data and your images are only stored on your PC. Also, the code is Open-Source for you to check/contribute: https://github.com/kurtextrem/Layoutify-for-Instagram Privacy Policy: https://kurtextrem.de/chrome/PRIVACY.html (Sensitive data is only collected and stored on your own PC, options are synced if Chrome Sync is turned on) Permissions: "*.instagram.com/*" means that it only has access to Instagram APIs and the Instagram web. As written above, data is only collected on your own PC and the data stays there. Changelog --------- v3.3.3.5: Bug fixes (fixed the "X" icon in the share modal; fixed the share modal) v3.3.3: Fixes clicking on stories in the feed and speeds the loading a bit up. v3.3.2: Added "System Night Mode" option.

Much nicer colors. Fixed a few bugs regarding the 3-dots page. v2.8.0: You can now see Collection folders. However, it is in a beta test at the moment.

Latest reviews

  • (2021-03-16) Keri R: It does fix the layout for Instagram on Google Chrome but you cannot see your likes or saves. The whole reason for me adding this extension was so that I could see my likes on my laptop too....
  • (2021-03-07) Никита Ланцов: it shows only 10 liked pics and duplicate them :(
  • (2021-02-05) Godstime Ojinmah: I'm not able to view all of my likes. It repeats about the same 10 likes no matter how long I scroll down. Please fix this issue, I really rely on viewing my likes on the web.
  • (2021-02-01) Ghainan Ibragimov: it shows only 20-30 liked pics and duplicate them
  • (2021-01-24) Armorcor 96: It's really good. However, it interacts with other extensions, like one I have to visualize stories. The problem would be fixed if only I could change the automatic access from "*://*.instagram.com/*" ro "*://*.instagram.com" as it would leave stories alone. But it does not allow any change
  • (2021-01-17) JESSROCKED Channel: First impression, it's as good as described. Finally I can see all IG posts without scrolling from North Pole to South Pole just to see the 3rd post.
  • (2021-01-01) Manuel Miunske: Great extension! Thanks Jacob!
  • (2020-12-27) Raman Kumar: Very Good
  • (2020-12-04) Acid: Efficient little addon. Remembers volume level, best feature imho. Works as described. Thank you for the effort and work you put into this. Much appreciated.
  • (2020-11-10) Ste: Great
  • (2020-11-05) Jordan: terrible, didn't work after multiple attempts.
  • (2020-10-19) Nickel: Загружает только видео, не показывает фотографии.
  • (2020-10-08) josh wanner: Would love it if it worked. It's rare that it works properly, can very rarely like posts. I can go through and comment on posts quickly which I like but I'd also like to just like posts instead of the only way to interact would be to comment.
  • (2020-09-30) Pierpaolo Onnis: Does everything it's said and the dev is always implementing new things to give instagram webpage what the app offers and more! I recommend it!
  • (2020-09-27) yugal kishore: it is amazingly built, before i used to use https://www.howtotechies.com/private-video-downloader#download to download private accounts' videos and posts, but what you have built lets me just right click which is really useful for me. Thank you
  • (2020-09-07) Gayvon Fartin: Underrated
  • (2020-08-27) Adel a: marvelous روعة
  • (2020-07-27) John Winslow: Awesome new update! Took care of so many issues and the extension works great again. Thank you so much.
  • (2020-07-23) ilja Ushakov: I don't understand how to view collections, this is basically why i needed the app - when i click on collections i just get my SAVED posts but i cannot see the folders where i put them into.
  • (2020-07-21) George Andrade: Its no showing the collection folders
  • (2020-07-19) Matt H.: Worked well for a while, but as of a few days ago, content on Instagram no longer loads so long as this extension is installed. It also fails to retrieve my liked posts, showing a "no data available" message, despite having worked fine before. Even uninstalling and reinstalling the extension has not fixed this.
  • (2020-07-08) It's not working again. Won't allow you to view individual posts.
  • (2020-04-15) Jose Chávez: Es increinlemente util.
  • (2020-04-05) Vladimir Tereshchenko: Thank you very match, all works after last upgrade))
  • (2020-04-03) Richard van Heerde: Tnx for this update . Now its working again like a charm . Keep up the good work :)
  • (2020-03-24) Javier Silva: Not working properly, it started to repeat first two rows and stopped showing favorites. Fails both in Chrome and Edge
  • (2020-03-17) Tayfun Yaşar: cant scroll down. its broken after latest update.
  • (2020-03-14) Other Account: Does not work anymore. Cannot scrol past two rows, will jump back again and again.
  • (2020-02-10) Diva380: I specifically downloaded this extension to allow me to see my Liked Posts history on my laptop instead of my phone, as I then don't have to worry about it defaulting back to the main feed like my phone does whenever new posts pop up. I want to scroll through my Liked History and STAY there. While this app does allow me to do that, it only shows a limited amount of posts (probably a few thousand, but I have SEVERAL thousand I want to look at). I cannot view ALL of my posts, as this extension just doesn't allow you to scroll past a certain number of posts. I'm hoping this extension gets updated to allow for scrolling to whatever the end of your Liked History is, regardless of number. That, or at least double the amount of what it allows you to scroll through currently. If they can manage the former though, I'll give this app 5 stars instead of 4 right now.
  • (2020-01-08) Jody MacDonald: I want to love and use this app but it works maybe 2% of the time. I can' t load my Saved items very often and if they do load, it won't load all of them. So frustrating because this app has so much potential to be great!
  • (2020-01-05) happy.: All is very good, nice developer, nice extension. I love it! Especially as it offers unique features :)
  • (2020-01-02) Trevor Devalle: It doesn't work anymore :(
  • (2019-11-16) Dames89: If you could add a feature to record\download IG Live videos that would be great.
  • (2019-11-05) Jakob Franck: Scheint nach einer ersten Probe eine großartige Erweiterung zu sein, die die Nutzbarkeit von Instagram auf dem PC massiv verbessert: Bessere Darstellung, insbesondere Laustärkeregelung für Videos, viele Einstellmöglichkeiten, etc. Vielen Dank an den Entwickler!!! Verbesserungsvorschlag: Für Lautstärke von Videos bitte einen Default-Level einstellbar machen oder letzte Einstellung merken, damit man die Lautstärke nicht bei jedem Video wieder abpassen muss (insbesondere bei Stories nervig...).
  • (2019-10-31) Tense: Ok, videos are working now.
  • (2019-10-26) chi dai: Hi!Videos Bug again,videos can't play in mainpage,can you fix it please.
  • (2019-10-18) Pita G: Videos Bug.Videos won;t playu
  • (2019-09-05) Antonio Javier Guerra Lucena: Ante funcionaba muy bien, desde hace unos días, ya no ocupa la pantalla completa en el ancho, solo muestra una imagen en vertical, al lado izquierdo??
  • (2019-08-02) Emily Collison: I was mostly interested in the ability to view my saved image collections, but I find that this feature barely works. While I can see how the four most recent images in each collection is separated, I'm not able to open a collection on it's own and view everything in it, I'm also not able to view the collection names, which means that everything is in numbered categories. Ideally I'd want to be able to view collections in the same way they're view-able in the app, I'd like to be able to open each collection in a separate tab and view everything collected together in that way, this would be an extremely useful feature which isn't offered by any other extension I've found.
  • (2019-07-05) Malik Zouari: i'm so happy that there is this kind of extension for Instagram but there is two problems i faced when i set the view to 3 rows it keeps bugging and glitching, actually I can't see more than three post in a whole second, I can't hit like when it's a video post .. I hope the liking effect will be more clear keep the good work !! <3
  • (2019-06-23) Yannick Burky: Soooo coool !!!
  • (2019-03-20) Руслан Осадчий: Очень удобно, особенно на большом мониторе, а дальше посмотрим))
  • (2019-02-20) Daniel S.M.: It's very good! But the "Hide Stories from" doesn't work. I can't add usernames to the list, in any format (complete url or just username). How can I hide posts and histories from an user, without unfollow? Thank you!
  • (2018-12-25) SP Giovanni: No data available (have you tried clicking the three dots on top of Instagram.com?) Click!
  • (2018-12-11) Puth Sosouphanith: I really love Improved Layout for Instagram.
  • (2018-12-08) Options to configure don't work.
  • (2018-10-06) seria posible agregues la funcion de solo ver videos en el feed, gracias 5 estrellas muy buenaa-..
  • (2018-10-02) Good, but there is a problem. Using the 4-in-a-row view, it seems to miss every 7-8th post compared with my mobile's feed.
  • (2018-09-28) Lea Liu: It's a really helpful extension for people who use Instagram on PC and want to collect posts. But recently, the extension always failed to load my Liked posts. Some time it cannot load my newest Likes, some time it only load 10 or 12 newest posts but never load more old Likes. I can fix it by re-install the extension, but it's hard to do it anytime. Hope it can be fixed. Thank you!
  • (2018-09-28) Simona Dimitrova: Amazing! much better than the original ig layout for web...

    Hi there, how do I remove Layoutify from my account? I had to "link" it to my IG account to use it - so how do I unlink it? I need to do some testing using the original UI, but I'll re-link after I'm done. Thanks

  • (2020-12-03, v:3.3.3) OzzyOscy: Stories on the extension now no longer work
    If you click a story, it won't open. Try a direct link one and it'll just say there's a problem. The extension has to be disabled to allow viewing and default interaction options with a story (rather than the extras the extension gives).

    Yesterday all was good with your extension but today I noticed a problem on my end. It is easier to show then to explain. https://imgur.com/NQOg6M4 When I deactivate your extension then the bar is back at the top, and stays there?
  • (2020-08-05, v: OzzyOscy: Stories column / row gone for months now
    App update August 4th. Still no fix, not even a word, presumably it's a design choice and never coming back, thus literally removing a feature not adding it. 0 stars.

    When using downloader for instagram and browsing the main feed, if I try to download images from a post with multiple images, the downloader will only download the first image not download the subsequent images. More clearly when there are multiple images the downloader will only download the first image. Please help it's awesome to use both of these extensions at the same time.

  • (2020-06-14, v: James P: Downloader for instagram issue

  • (2020-06-11, v: OzzyOscy: Stories column / row not showing
    Figured this was a known problem that'd be fixed with an update, but no change for a long while... There used to be a column of stories down the right (or a row of them on the top in normal IG), but that's been gone for a few weeks now.

  • (2020-05-29, v: Jeremy Manson: Viewing posts I've liked not working
    I installed this extension mainly to keep track of posts that I'd "liked" on Instagram. However, lately when I try to view my likes using the extension, the page doesn't show any images (just the "broken image" box in each post) and it begins with things that were posted 2-3 months ago, as opposed to today/yesterday/etc.
  • (2020-05-29, v: Jennifer Hynes: Installed extension to view collections but am not seeing the collection name.

    The new version 3.1.1 still does not seem to work for me, I still only get the bar on the right, the rest is still all black. :(
  • (2020-04-26, v:3.1.0) Dora Fourdora: Comments
    Also one real improvement that you can do to chrome based instagram is about reading comments. At this time a plus sign appears and you have to constantly click on it to read just 3 more comments. I remember I used to be able to click on comments and it allowed the full screen to be just the comments and I could just use my page down/up button. But that has disappeared. Now it's really cumbersome to look through the comments.
  • (2020-04-24, v:3.1.0) Dora Fourdora: Download only first and live missing
    It still downloads only the first pic after the update. We cannot react to the story because the comment line disappears. Also I have to turn your extension off to see who is live.
  • (2020-04-22, v:3.1.0) Games James: Use of this extension is logging me out of instagram
    When I use this plugin and scroll down until it tries to load the next set of images, it jams and logs me out of instagram. I can tell because when the new images fail to load, I open instagram in a new tab and it asks me to login.
  • (2020-04-20, v:3.1.0) Maurice Verdonk: Still the same.
    The new version 3.10 still shows nothing but the floating bar on the right, the rest is still all black for me. I assume that this is one of those to do points mentioned in the update information?

    The new version still has the same problem for me as before. :(
  • (2020-04-06, v:3.0.0) Dora Fourdora: the two extension problem!
    Hi, I use your extension with "download for instagram" by aboveradiant extension! The problem that has just started is that your layout covers the stories by that extension after your fix. Try it please! Or probably you can change the layout to include what that extension does so that we don't have to use both. That extension also shows who is live and the saved lives.
  • (2020-04-04, v:3.0.0) Dan Goldsmith: Problems with update
    The update has fixed the scrolling issue but it seems to have caused problems with: 1 - opening a post from within a user's profile page, and 2 - unfollowing a user. I think they're both related to popups being suppressed - if I temporarily disable the extension then both these issues are resolved so I think it's a problem with the extension rather than something on my system.
  • (2020-04-04, v:3.0.0) Games James: Problems with update
    Scroll works however now IG stories are still visible on the screen on the left and right sides. I can no longer click usernames I uploaded an image and highlighted what I'm seeing- hope this helps! https://imgur.com/Y5XISJL
  • (2020-04-04, v:3.0.0) Games James: Scrolling fix BUT!
    Unable to click pictures in a users profile, pictures do not expand at all!
