An Excel Keyboard Shortcut

Undo changes in Excel Using a Keyboard Shortcut

This Excel tip shows you how to "undo" changes made to an Excel spreadsheet using a keyboard

shortcut.

Note: It's important to remember that when you use Undo, it "undoes" your actions in the exact

reverse order that you applied them.

The key combination used to "undo" changes:

y Ctrl + " Z "

Example of How to Undo Changes using a Keyboard Shortcut

Note: For help with this example, see the image to the right.

1. Type some data into a cell, such as A1 in the spreadsheet and press the Enter key on the

keyboard.

2. Click on that cell to make it the active cell.

3. Click on Home tab of the ribbon.

4. Apply the following formatting options to your data:

o change the font color,

o widen the column,

o underline,

o change the font type to Arial Black,

o center align the data

5. Press and hold down the Ctrl key on the keyboard.

6. Press and release the letter " Z " on the keyboard.

7. The data in the cell should change back to left alignment as the last change (center

alignment) is undone.

8. Press and hold down the Ctrl key on the keyboard again.

9. Press and release the letter " Z " on the keyboard twice without releasing the Ctrl key.

10. Not only will the underline be removed but the font will no longer be Arial Black.

11. This happens because, as mentioned above, the undo feature "undoes" your actions in the

exact reverse order that you applied them.
