Repeating the Last Action

At the beginning of the summer we went over how to undo the last action executed in Microsoft Excel for Mac (http://www.excelskin.com/blogs/the-excel-skinny/7853375-undo-the-last-action).  Today we will learn how to “repeat the last action” – basically how to undo the undo.  

So lets say you just made a big mistake and you hit the Undo shortcut (Command + Z).  Then you realize it wasn’t a mistake and you shouldn’t have executed the Undo shortcut, this is where the Repeat Last Action comes into play.  We can execute the simple 1 modifier key Repeat Last Action shortcut and your Undo is reversed.  




I highlighted random cells by mistake:



So I execute the Undo shortcut (Command + Z) 



And the highlight goes away.  But 2 seconds later I decide I actually like the highlight.  Now I execute the Repeat Last Action Shortcut.  




And our highlighted fields are back! 


This shortcut can save you a bunch of time from having to retype or redo the last action you mistakenly reversed with the Undo shortcut.
