How to Undo and Redo in Google Docs

Undo and Redo

You don’t need to be afraid of making a mistake in Docs, because you can use the Undo feature to erase your actions. The undo and redo commands are very useful for working with text in a document.


  1. Click the Undo button on the toolbar to undo the last action.
  2. Undo and Redo

Press Ctrl + Z.

Your last action is undone. For example, if you had deleted an item and then decided you wanted to keep it after all, undo would make it reappear.


Redo is the opposite of undo: it redoes an action you have undone. For example, if you decide that you do, after all, want to delete an item that you have just brought back with undo, you can redo the action.

  1. Click the Redo button on the toolbar to redo the last action.
