Instagram reels show up under the Reels tab and can be seen by anyone with a public account. But you can turn on the “Also share to feed” option when you share a reel so that it shows up on your Instagram profile grid along with other posts. Adding a reel video to your profile grid makes it easy for your followers to find your reels.
The Instagram app lets users hide a reel from their feed by giving them the option to “Remove from Profile Grid.” When you do this, the reel is taken off from your profile and placed under your reels.
But you can’t put a reel back on your profile grid if you take it off or forget to share it to your feed when you post.
In fact, older versions of Instagram did have the “Add to Profile Grid” option. Later, the company got rid of this feature, so now you can only add a reel while sharing. This is a big problem, and there’s not much you can do about it. You can, of course, download and repost the reel, but you will lose the reach and engagement that the reel may have had.
There is, however, a way to get a reel back on the profile grid after you have taken it off. Even if you didn’t add the reel to your feed in the first place, it still works. To get reels back on the profile grid, you have to download an old version of Instagram.
Now let’s look at how to put Instagram reels back on the profile grid after removing them or posting them.
