    Is there a way I can trim my list of scraped IG account info to just
    be a list of usernames without their urls?
    Does Scrapebox have that function?

    If you post an example url of what your working with I can tell you. "maybe" is the best option I have though, but worst of cases you could do this in excel without much trouble.

    Scrapebox does not have this feature at the moment. Check my signature for my Instagram Scraper, it does exactly what you need.

    This, you don't need no complicated tool for that.

    If you already have the urls, you can use Excel or i prefer Notepad++ for this kind of tasks. Use the Search and replace function, search for the url part and replace it with nothing. If those are ig urls, the url pattern should be the same, so you'll be left with one username per line.

    Actually I'd agree! Notepad or ++ will work quicker than excel, depeding on the size of the file
