Join Dennis Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Undo and Redo, part of Excel Essential Training (Office 365/Microsoft 365).
- [Instructor] When working with Excel,…sometimes you'll make a mistake, I know I do.…And from time to time,…we've got a real lifesaving feature available,…it's called Undo, and it's got a companion called Redo.…So, imagine I'm a novice user of Excel,…for whatever reason, I've got these cells highlighted,…and I want to get rid of the word Sales.…I don't really have to do that, I could type over it,…but I'm thinking it's the only cell there.…If I press delete, shouldn't it get rid of the word Sales?…It looks different than the other ones to the right.…I press delete, well obviously,…in retrospect, I don't want to do that.…
So what do we do?…Two different ways, there is a keystroke shortcut,…Control + Z, I could press that now.…At the top of the screen in the Quick Access Toolbar,…you'll have an Undo button, it's a counterclockwise arrow.…When you slide over it, you'll see the word Undo,…followed by the action that was taken most recently,…in this case, clear,…and those keystroke shortcut.…So I'll click it.…And, Undo can remember up to 100 of your last steps.…
