Undo Changes in Word 2010 - Microsoft Word

What is Undo Changes in Word 2010?

In this section, we will talk over how to undo and redo changes in Word 2010. Microsoft word offers two significant features called the Undo and the Repeat or Redo. The Undo feature is used to undo the earlier action and the Repeat or Redo feature is used to repeat the previous action.
For instance, if you incorrectly delete text, you can use the Undo feature to recover it. In a like way, if you delete a character and you want to delete more characters then you can use the Repeat operation.

How to use Undo & Repeat operations

You can access the Undo and Repeat buttons from the Quick Access toolbar. You should make a note that the Repeat button is also called Redo button and both the operations have the same meaning.

Here is the simple procedure to apply undo or repeat (redo) operations −

Step 1 − Let us type some text in a blank document. Currently click the Repeat(Redo) button and you will see that Word will repeat the same operation for you.

Step 2 − Now to examine the undo operation, let us delete the last word operation character by character so that you have the following text remaining in the line.

Step 3 − Let us try to click the Undo button one by one. You will see that Word will recover all the deleted characters one by one after performing a few undo operations.

Shortcuts to use Undo & Repeat operations

Although you can access the Undo and Repeat commands from the Quick Access toolbar, but because these commands are the most regularly used commands, we recommend you learn their keyboard shortcuts which are as follows −
