If you have been using Instagram for a while, you might want to clean up your profile by archiving some of your old posts that are no longer relevant or don’t fit the style of your current feed. It’s also a great way to keep your profile tidy while preserving your content. However, if you later change your mind and want to restore an archived post, you might wonder how to do it. In this post, we will guide you through the process of archiving and unarchiving Instagram posts.

Firstly, it’s important to note that in order to archive and unarchive Instagram posts, you need to have your account set up as either a business account or a creator account. To switch your account type, click on the three dots and open up the settings. Click on your account and scroll down until you see “Switch to Business” or “Switch to Creator Account.” Choose the one that suits your needs.

To archive a post, select the post you want to archive and click on the three dots. Then, click on “Archive.” Your post is now archived, and you can find it in the “Archive” section of your profile. To unarchive a post, click on the three stripes and then click on “Archive.” All your stories are also archived here, so select “Posts” instead of “Stories.” Choose the post you want to restore, click on it, and then click on the three dots. Finally, click on “Share” and then “Show on Profile.” Your post is now unarchived and visible on your profile.
