Almost everyone knows how to edit Instagram posts, but no one knows how to edit Instagram stories. Because Instagram does not design a feature that enables you to edit Instagram stories.
I must mention earlier that you can edit your Instagram stories with AiGrow on your PC as well as your cellphone. Here I illustrate the process on PC. No matter what your device is, you still need to take the exact same steps.
After you Sign up to AiGrow for free and connect your Instagram to your dashboard:
Enter your username here and select the story you want to edit
Just remember to delete the original Instagram story after the edited one goes live.
To edit Instagram story highlights, you should follow the instruction that was just given. But you still can edit the name or cover of the highlight.
If you wanna edit the highlight cover and select a cover that is not among the stories, you should first publish that cover to your story and add it to your highlights. If you are uncomfortable with doing so, you can hide the story from everyone when you publish that cover to your story.
You should know your highlights are arranged in chronological order. It means every time you add a story to a highlight, that highlight appears in the beginning. Other than that, you can not reorder the highlights [yet.]
Nope! The stories are ordered chronologically and after adding them to highlights, you can not reorder them.
It’s been said by many Instagram experts that you should not edit Instagram posts when they go live. That is why you are required to double or triple check your Instagram post before you publish it.

As said, you’d better not edit your post. But if you made a seriously huge mistake and you have no choice but to delete all your content, AiGrow helps you to mass delete Instagram posts of yours with only one click.

Then click “Select All Posts” and “Delete”
This feature is the para-app only and you can not edit Instagram posts on the Instagram web. However, using AiGrow, this can be done on any device.
Instagram does not have a feature to enable you to edit Instagram comments. And to be fair, this feature is not even necessary. Delete the comment and leave a new one.
The same goes for Instagram DMs. If there is an error regarding the DM you have sent, you can simply unsend the DM and write a new one. When you unsend a direct message, you delete the DM from both sides.

We all have made some errors when it comes to Instagram which we noticed after the content goes live whether it is posts, stories, comments, or direct messages.
Although you’d better not edit Instagram posts after they are published if you insist, you must tap on the three dots top right of the post and select edit.
For the rest, there is not an actual feature to edit. But there are some workarounds.
