If you know Undo, you should also know Redo, right? Because these two commands can be said to be in pairs.
In an article on Wikipedia, Undo is an interaction technique which is implemented in many computer programs. It erases the last change done to the document, reverting it to an older state.
Whereas Redo is Undo’s opponent. Redo command reverses the undo or advances the buffer to a more recent state.
To make it easier to do these two commands, we usually use the shortcut keys more often. As we know, the Undo shortcut on the keyboard is to press the CTRL + Z keys simultaneously.
Then how about the Redo shortcut, what button should we press?
Default Redo Keyboard Shortcut
Similar to Undo shortcut, Redo shortcut can also be found on the keyboard.
The redo hotkey by default for all applications in Windows that we have tried is the CTRL + Y key.
But it turns out that in some other applications running on Windows, there is still one more Redo hotkey that can be used, namely the CTRL + SHIFT + Z key. After we tried, the results were the same as when we pressed the CTRL + Y key.
So you can choose which Redo keyboard shortcut you want to use. After you press the CTRL + Z button, to restore it you can choose CTRL + Y or CTRL + SHIFT + Z.
This shortcut for Redo can be used on Microsoft Office products and other applications running on the Windows operating system.
So you don’t need to be confused anymore with how to redo in word. You can choose between the two Redo keyboard shortcuts.
