  1. Ctrl + Z erased data


    I was working on editing together a compilation of clips of me and my friends. When I went to get a new clip to add to the editing software, I accidentally dragged a video into another folder. I thought "no big deal" and just hit undo. The issue is, it deleted the folder and its contents. I checked the recycle bin and it wasn't there. I checked everywhere I could think to check and it was gone. Tried the redo shortcut, but that only brought the folder back. not its contents. Tried to restore the folder, but it said there was nothing to restore it to. I tried all that I could before contacting

  2. 2020 and ctrl-z problem deleting folders continues

    Ctrl+Z will undo the previous action, e.g.

    • When you insert a text into a Word document then Ctrl+Z will undo the insertion.
    • When you create a formula in a spreadsheet then Ctrl+Z will remove the formula.

    It seems you expect Ctrl+Z to ask the user whether he really wants to undo the most recent action. This would constitute a major change of philosophy.

    Ctrl + Z erased data

    Ctrl+Z not working in any application Windows 10

    Ctrl+Z (undo) doesn't work in any application. I.E., doesn't work in ms paint, notepad, etc.

    I don't think it's a hardware issue because ctrl+c etc work, just ctrl+z doesn't work. Also, I was able to manually use Ctrl+Z as shortcuts in other applications. I tried making Ctrl+Z the shortcut for GeForce Experience Overlay and it worked fine.

    Any suggestions on how to find which application might be hijacking ctrl+z?

    Could it be a registry issue?

    Did this hotkey lose priority somehow?

    I tried starting in safe mode / clean boot and it didn't help.
