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.
