Using the Undo and Redo Buttons
Now that the letter has been saved, you can continue working on it.
Using the Undo and Redo Buttons
To undo (or reverse) the last thing you did in a document, click the Undo button on
the Quick Access Toolbar. To restore your original change, use the Redo button , which
reverses the action of the Undo button (or redoes the undo). To undo more than your
last action, you can continue to click the Undo button, or you can click the Undo
button arrow on the Quick Access Toolbar. This opens a list of your most recent actions, in
which you can click the action you want to undo; Word then undoes every action in the
list, up to and including the action you clicked in the list.
Andrew asks you to change the word “concerns” to “questions” in the sentence “I
think it will answer all your concerns.” You’ll make the change now. If Andrew decides
he doesn’t like it after all, you can always undo it.
To change the word “concerns”:
1. Press the left arrow key
twice to move the insertion point to the right of the
“s” in the word “concerns.”
2. Press the Backspace key eight times to delete the word “concerns,” and then
type questions as a replacement.
After reviewing the sentence, Andrew decides he prefers the original wording, so
you will undo the change.
3. On the Quick Access Toolbar, place the mouse pointer over the Undo button
but don’t click it. The ScreenTip “Undo Typing (Ctrl + Z)” appears, indicating that
your most recent action involved typing. The item in parentheses is the keyboard
shortcut for the Undo command. See Figure 1-5.

4. Click the Undo button
on the Quick Access Toolbar. The Repeat button
changes to the Redo button
. The word “questions” is replaced with the
original word, “concerns.”
Andrew decides that he does want to use “questions” after all. Instead of retyping
it, you’ll redo the undo.
5. On the Quick Access Toolbar, place the mouse pointer over the Redo button
to
display the “Redo Typing (Ctrl + Y)” ScreenTip.
6. Click the Redo button on the Quick Access Toolbar. The word “questions”
replaces “concerns” in the document, so that the phrase reads “…answer all your
questions.”
7. On the Quick Access Toolbar, click the Save button . Word saves your letter
with the same name and to the same location you specified earlier.
