TikTok has released a desktop version accessible through the TikTok Site. However, to encourage its users to use the mobile app more, all of its features are only available from the mobile app.



You can install an Android/iOS emulator on your Windows or macOS computer to work around this problem. The emulator emulates an Android or iOS device; hence, you will be able to access TikTok for mobile on your PC.

Here's how to start using the reputable BlueStacks emulator on your PC:

  2. Save the downloaded file and then run it. Depending on the speed of your internet connection or computer, the download and installation process may take some time.
  3. After installation, BlueStacks should start automatically.
  4. When starting BlueStacks, you will be presented with the Google login page to access the Google Play Store.
  5. Once logged in, you will see an Android home screen that includes apps typical for Android devices.
  6. Double-click the "Play Store" app and "Accept" the "Terms of Service" to continue.
  7. Enter a search for “TikTok” and install the app.
  8. Once installed, click “Open”.

To pin or unpin a comment via the emulator:

  2. Find the comment you want to pin by:
    • Select the "Me" icon in the bottom tab, then to browse comments, tap the three-dot bubble.
    • Tap "Inbox" at the bottom of the screen to see your notifications. Find the comment and it will open the comments section on that post.
