The Finder’s Undo Command

| Tips

I hate it when I click and drag to move a file or folder, and then accidentally drop it in the wrong location. Especially when I have no idea where that location is. Luckily, the Finder in Tiger has an undo feature. The Finderis undo works with most Finder-related actions, including moving and renaming files and folders. It does have one limitation: You canit use it to undelete files after you empty the Trash.

Choose Edit > Undo to undo your last Finder action.

To undo an action in the Finder, either Choose Edit > Undo from the menu bar, or use the Command-Z keyboard shortcut before you do anything else. The Undo option in the menu bar also tells you exactly what it is that you are about to revert.
