Microsoft word provides two important features called the Undo and the Redo. The Undo feature is used to undo the previous action and the Redo feature is used to repeat the previous action.

For example, if you mistakenly delete some text, you can use the Undo feature to recover it. In a similar fashion, if you delete any character and you want to delete more characters then you can use the Redo operation.

How to use Undo & Redo Operations ?

It is very easy to use Undo and Redo Operations. You can access the Undo and Redo or Repeat buttons from the Quick Access toolbar. As in the picture given below:

Here is the simple procedure to apply undo or repeat (redo) operations −

Step 1 − Let us enter some text in a blank document. Now click the Repeat (Redo) button and you will see that Word will repeat the same task for you.

Step 2 − Now to examine the undo operation, let us delete the last word operation character by character so that you have the following text remaining in the line.

Step 3 − Let us try to click the Undo button one by one. You will see that Word will recover all the deleted characters one by one after performing a few undo operations.
