How To Undo Or Redo Multiple Actions

Most people know about Excel’s undo and redo feature by one of the following methods.

  • The Ctrl + Z (for undo) and Ctrl + Y (for redo) keyboard shortcuts.
  • The undo and redo buttons in the Quick Access Toolbar.



But did you know about Excel’s feature to undo and redo multiple actions at one time?

  1. Press the small down arrow to the right of the undo button in the Quick Access Toolbar.
  2. Move your cursor down the list of previous actions until you’ve highlighted all the actions you want to undo then left click to perform the undo.
  3. At the bottom of the drop down the number of highlighted actions (those you are going to undo) will be displayed.


The same thing can be done with redoing actions.
