Here’s what you can do to save Instagram posts and organize them into collections to see later.

When you follow interesting hashtags on Instagram, you will come across many posts that you might want to save and see later.

How to save Instagram posts and create collections?

Saving a post on Instagram and adding it to a collection is an extremely simple task, but let’s also say, finding saved posts is a completely different story.

  • When you come across an Instagram post you want to bookmark, simply tap the “Save” button in the lower right corner of the post (it appears as a Bookmark icon).
  • When you tap the button, Instagram will save it in the “All Posts” section. You will also see an “Add to Collection” button appearing for a short period.

There is also a second and better way to add posts to the collection.

  • Tap and hold the Save button to open the “Add to Collection” box.
  • Here you will see all available Collections you created before.
  • If you are using this feature for the first time, you will need to create a new Collection. Tap the “Plus (+)” button.
  • Next, give the Collection a name and tap the “Done” button. The post will be saved into the  Collection you created.
  • The next time you want to save a post to an existing Collection, tap and hold the “Save” button and then select the Collection.

How to find saved posts in Instagram?

Instagram has moved the Recorded feature behind a menu. Follow the steps below to find it.

  • Tap your “Profile” button from the bottom toolbar of the social media application.
  • Select the three-line button on the upper right corner.
  • Now select the “Saved” option from the list.
  • You should now see all your Collections.
  • If you want to discover all your saved posts, tap on “All Posts”.

Organizing Instagram posts and collections

  • As you use the Save feature to select your collections, you may sometimes want to remove posts or delete Collections entirely.
  • Go to the “Saved” section of your profile and tap a Collection.
  • Here, tap the three-line button in the upper right corner of the screen.
  • If you want, you can tap the “Delete Collection” button to permanently delete the Collection.
  • From the next screen, tap the “Delete” button to confirm the action.
  • If you want to edit the collection, tap the “Edit Collection” option. From here you can change the name and cover art of the Collection.
  • Instagram also has a batch save option. Tap “Select” from the menu. From there, select all the posts you want to remove.
  • Tap the “Uninstall” button. If you are in the “All Posts” section, the label will appear as “Unregister”.
