I'm on a Mac, and it worked for me. Thank you for this solution. For some reason, I was unable to delete the comments on my phone, so doing it from the desktop took care of the problem.

This only works on your own posts. If the comment you want to delete is on someone elses post It wont have the option to remove comments when you hit the 3 dots.

Facebook has totally ruined instagram, this no longer works on the computer. Instagram is more buggy and laggy than ever before thanks to facebook buying it. Something as simple as deleting ones own comments can't even be done.

My experience is as Daryl noted: "There is no longer a remove comment option under the 3 dots on a PC." I recall being able to do this, previously, but the option no longer appears to exist. I welcome any suggestions or corrections from someone more knowledgeable than myself. By the way, I do not have a Smartphone/mobile device to try. Thanks.

There is no longer a remove comment option under the 3 dots on a PC. No way on a PC to remove a comment you've made now that I can find
