    1. Hi Jonathan. The IG interface has changed since I wrote this, as it often does. Also, it now presents differently to different kinds of accounts (personal, business, creator, and there are probably more). For me, the clock symbol moved into the menu available when you click the symbol with 3 lines on the top right of your profile page.

      Clicking Archive doesn’t do anything to a post — it just opens an archive of your Instagram Stories. Hope that helps.

      1. Same problem here, I can’t find a picture I accidentally archived… It’s not in Archive, and I have no Highlights…

        1. Hi Etienne. The Archive only stores your expired Instagram Stories. So if you didn’t put that picture in an Instagram Story, it won’t be there. You don’t have to do anything to have Stories archived — it’s automatic, leaving you an option to put Stories in Highlights after they expire after 24 hours. If it’s a Post you’re looking for, those aren’t archived — and if it’s missing, you probably inadvertently deleted it.
