How to Pin a Comment in TikTok From a PC

TikTok has released a desktop version accessible via the TikTok website. However, to encourage its users to use the mobile app more, its full features and functionality are only available from the mobile app.

You can install an Android/iOS emulator on your Windows or macOS computer to get around this. The emulator emulates an Android or iOS device; therefore, you’ll be able to access TikTok for mobile on your PC.

Here’s how to get started using the reputable emulator BlueStacks on your PC:

  1. Navigate to the BlueStacks website, and select “Download BlueStacks.”
  2. Save the downloaded file, then run it. Depending on your internet or computer speed, the download and installation process may take a while to complete.
  3. After the install, BlueStacks should automatically start.
  4. When BlueStacks starts, you’ll be presented with the Google sign-in page to access the Google Play Store.
  5. Once signed in, you’ll see an Android home screen including the apps typical for Android devices.
  6. Double-click on the “Play Store” app and “Accept” the “Terms of Service” to continue.
  7. Enter a search for “TikTok” and install the app.
  8. Once it’s installed, click “Open.”

To pin or unpin a comment via the emulator:

  1. Log in to TikTok.
  2. Find the comment you want to pin by either:
    • Select the “Me” icon in the bottom tab, then to go through the comments, tap on the three-dotted bubble.
    • Tap on “Inbox” at the bottom of the screen to see your notifications. Find the comment, and it will open the comments section on that post.
  3. Long-press the comment to open a new pop-up window.
  4. There you’ll have the “Pin comment” and “Unpin comment” options.
  5. Choose “Pin comment.” When you’re ready to unpin the comment, select “Unpin comment.”

Can you Pin Comments on TikTok Live?

Currently, it’s not possible to pin comments made during live sessions. Though not quite the same as pinning your Live comments, TikTok has a “Live Replay” feature where a copy of your live streams is accessible for replay and download for up to 90 days after the stream.

This handy little feature is useful for helping creators learn and improve future streams by going through previous ones. Here’s how to replay/download a live stream:

  1. Log in to TikTok.
  2. To the right of the options at the bottom, tap “Me.”
  3. Tap the three-dotted icon at the top right.
  4. On the “Settings and Privacy” page, scroll down to “Live Replay.” You’ll see a list of all your live streams less than 90 days old.
  5. Find a stream of interest, then tap on the play button or the “Download” option beneath it.

Sticking Comments to Your Posts

Video-sharing platform TikTok now includes the option to pin comments to your posts.

Using this feature can help to show off more of your personality and inspire conversations.

Comments can be pinned to your posts without fuss. Simply find the video and comment, and select the “Pin comment” option. Since you’re currently allowed to pin just one comment at a time, TikTok makes it just as easy to replace comments.
