    If I want to reorder my Instagram highlights, is it possible? a friend says it is, but I don’t see any option for that on the app.

      If somebody says something is possible, ask him to show it. Maybe it’s only possible on their site, not in their app?

      There’s no direct feature within Instagram to re-order your Instagram Highlights, but there is a hack to get the job done! While experimenting, I found out that the Highlight that will move to the beginning of your list is the last edited one. “Edited” is defined as adding an Instagram Story to the Highlight.

      So, say that you have Highlights appearing in this order, from left to right: Food, Outfits, Vacation. If you want Vacation to appear first (before Food), all you need to do is add one of your archived Stories to the Vacation Highlight. Simple, right? The last edited Highlight will always move to the front of your list.

      Say there’s a scenario where you want Vacation to appear first in your list, but you don’t have any relevant Stories to actually add to the Highlight. Here’s what you do:

      1. Add any random archived Story you have to the Vacation Highlight and click “Done.”
      2. Go back into the Vacation Highlight and delete the Story you just added.
      3. You’ll notice that even though you’ve now deleted the last (and random) Story you just added, it still orders Vacation as first in your list now. And that’s it! Edit the order of your Highlights however you want.

      There’s no immediate component inside Instagram to re-request your Instagram Highlights, however, there is a hack to take care of business! While testing, I discovered that the Highlight that will move to the start of your rundown is the last altered one. “Altered” is characterized as adding an Instagram Story to the Highlight.

      You’re right, there’s no direct way to reorder Instagram highlights within the app itself. However, there is a workaround method that you and your friend are probably referring to. Here’s how it works:

      1. Add a temporary story to the highlight you want to move:

      Open the highlight you want to move to the front (let’s call it Highlight A).
      Tap the “…” menu and select “Edit Highlight.”
      Go to the “Stories” tab and add any random story from your archive. This temporary story will appear at the end of the highlight.

      2. Repeat for the remaining highlights in reverse order:
      Move to the next highlight you want to place before Highlight A (let’s call it Highlight B).
      Repeat the same steps: edit, add a temporary story, and finish editing.
      Do this for all highlights you want to place before Highlight A, working your way down in reverse order.

      3. Remove the temporary stories:
      Go back to Highlight A and edit it again.
      Find the temporary story you added and uncheck it. This will remove it from the highlight.
      Repeat this step for all other highlights where you added temporary stories.3
