Learn how to UNDO your last action in Windows and Mac OS

It’s the weekend, so just one simple tip to learn today!

I have found that one of the most useful keyboard shortcuts to know about is UNDO.

In Windows:   CTRL + Z

winctrl

 

In Mac OS:      ⌘CMD + Z

maccmd

 

Note how convenient these are; the Z key is very close to CTRL or CMD.

Using a keyboard shortcut in this instance is usually quicker and easier than locating the “undo” icon (if it exists!) in the app or program.

An example of when I use this shortcut:

Say I’m in the Windows File Explorer and I perform an unintended action with a file; perhaps I accidentally delete a file, or a folder. I realise my mistake, press CTRL + Z and the action is undone – phew!

Try this shortcut out to see how helpful it is: it may not work in EVERY app – just see what you can do!
