Aside from learning about abandoning quests, do remember that there are time-sensitive quests that only activate once your character reaches a particular point in the game. If you miss time-sensitive quests without abandoning them, such quests will still be eventually added as you continue completing the game's main story.

To restart a Hogwarts Legacy quest, which can help if they bugged out or you forgot where you were up to, just abandon the quest you want to restart and pick it back up again from the issuer.

Since you can abandon quests, keep in mind though that doing side quests can help you progress faster in the story with the bonuses you earn. So make sure you do some side quests every now and then!
