Now you will see how to use the “Undo” and “Redo” commands in Google Docs.
Basically, using the “Redo” and “Undo” commands in Google Docs is no different from how you do this in all other software on Windows OS and Mac OS. The principle is simple.
Sometimes, you may need to restore changes made in the document, for example, when you have deleted something by accident. And on the other hand, there's a redo function in case you want to recover what you’ve canceled with the undo action.Watch the video from https://thegoodocs.com/ and find out how to undo and redo in Google Docs:
NB! Now another way is to use a keyboard shortcut for a faster function implementation, which is Ctrl + Z on Windows OS and Cmd + Z on Mac OS.
Now let’s talk about the “Redo” command.
- After seeing the recovered text, for instance, we realize that we don’t actually need it, so we redo the previous action by going back to “Edit” on the toolbar at the top of the page and clicking on “Redo” on the second line. The text is gone again. And basically, it canceled the result of the “Undo” command
NB! And there’s a shortcut for the “Redo” command as well, so we are restoring the text and pressing Ctrl + Y on the keyboard for Windows OS and Cmd + Y for Mac OS.
NB! On top of that, the “Undo” and “Redo” commands are applicable to literally every action made in Google Docs.
NB! You can also use the special buttons (the left arrow and the right arrow) at the top of the page (on the left side) to run the "Undo" and "Redo" commands.
We hope this tutorial will help you learn how to undo and redo in Google Docs. Good luck!
