    On Chrome: Press (CTRL+SHIFT+I), which will pop open the developer’s window on the right-hand side of the screen.
    On the top of the developer screen, find an icon which looks like a ‘tablet’s screen’ — besides ‘Elements’ and click on it.
    This will essentially just change the view of the website from that of a desktop to a smartphone and tricks the website into thinking that it’s being accessed via a smartphone.
    The camera icon used to upload pictures will be available on the bottom of the screen, which can now be used to upload images directly from your PC.

    On Safari: Users will need to go to ‘Preferences’ then to ‘Advanced’ and check the box that says ‘Show Develop menu in menu bar’.
    Open a new private browsing window and set the ‘User Agent’ for Safari as ‘iOS 10 — iPhone’ from the ‘Develop menu’.
    You will now be able to see the ‘Camera’ icon using which you can upload photos directly from your laptop.

    If you have a Surface PC, you don't have to do any of this. All the features (uploading, DM) are all unlocked for Windows 10 certified touch convertibles.
