So if you know about the reapply the last filter you used, that's Command+F or Ctrl+F. Let's go ahead and do that. The last filter I ran was Gaussian Blur. So Command+F would reapply that, or Ctrl+F, okay. I am going to undo that, Command+Z. There is a variant of that, the make better key, right. Hold down the Option key or Alt and add that to Command+F. So Command+Option+F or Ctrl+Alt+F will reopen the last filter you used, which is a way to just pop in a different number. So if you think 5 is too small, you can do 10 for the Gaussian Blur, since that was the last filter I ran. Click OK. And there you have it. You can reapply or reopen the last filter you've used.
