Maybe even if you don’t remember all the keyboard shortcuts, the Ctrl + Z combo is more or less used. Because this is an extremely useful shortcut key to help you correct mistakes immediately. However, Ctrl + Z on Windows 10 does not have only that one feature, in this article, we will introduce all the uses of Ctrl + Z for your reference.
Undo a typo or edit it
Ctrl + Z is most commonly applied in typing tasks, editing videos, editing images… Whether you use this shortcut in Word Document, Email, code typing tools or any other website that allows it. type text… this shortcut can also help you undo what you just typed.
Ctrl + Z also performs the same function in Photoshop and InDesign software. If you accidentally edit too much or misplace a certain segment in the InDesign file, you can completely press this key combination to undo the action you just performed.
Depending on the software you use, you may be able to repeatedly press Ctrl + Z to undo. Each software will have a different undo limit, but usually there will be a common number of 20 clicks.
Undo the action of deleting files and folders
Surely you have many times deleted a certain file or folder by mistake and had to go to the Recycle Bin to search again, right? However, if you use the shortcut Ctrl + Z, the operation of recovering deleted files and folders will be much faster, and it will also save you the effort of having to rummage inside the Recycle Bin. And similar to undo text editing, you can also press this shortcut multiple times to undo multiple deleted files.
Create files with Command Prompt
Be it on the desktop or in the web browser, Ctrl + Z plays the role of undoing the action you just did, while in the Command Prompt, Ctrl + Z plays the role of creating a file. Often this shortcut will go with the “copy child” command line.
You can try it out if you want. First open the Command Prompt, then copy the code to copy testfile.txt. Next, you type any content. Finally, you press Ctrl + Z, on the screen will display the symbol ^Z. Now when you press Enter, a TXT text file will be created in the User > Admin folder with the content you just entered earlier.
Pause a command line task
Another use of Ctrl + Z is to immediately suspend a command line running in the command line. This feature is quite useful when you have a very long code run but you only need to test a certain segment and do not want to wait for the process to complete. If you want the command line to continue running, just press Ctrl + Z again.
Thank you for watching!
