Until now, I can tell you that Instagram won't send a notification when you screenshot a regular text message. But if someone sends you a photo via the stories feature in the DM, you take a screenshot of it. Then, the person will get a notification.

However, it may change in the future as the platform continues to evolve and add new features. So, it's always a good idea to check the latest information on Instagram's official website or app for the most current details.

As for taking screenshots of Instagram DM, you can check out the following simple methods:

#1. Screenshot Instagram DM on Desktop

EaseUS RecExperts is a nice tool to help you complete screenshot tasks on your Windows and Mac computers. With its help, you can easily take screenshots on Instagram with a simple click and export them in PNG format. Moreover, it also can be used to record Instagram videos, stories, and more if needed.

Step 1. Download and open this software on your desktop.

Step 2. Next, find and click a small camera icon on the right interface. 

Step 3. Once done, you can find the screenshots in the Recording tab.

#2. Screenshot Instagram DM on Mobile Devices

As for taking screenshots of Instagram DM on iOS or Android devices, it is much easier, as there is a built-in screenshot tool. For more detailed information, check below:

For Android users: 

  • Press the Power and Volume down buttons at the same time.

For iOS users:

I hope you can solve your problem here.
