    Notepad Ctrl-Z not working


    The CTRL-Z, or undo function on notepad is not working the way it is supposed to. Instead of undoing my last stroke, It seems to revert to a previous state. For example I type aaaaaaaaa, then ctrl-z cycles between that text and no text at all.

    :)

    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.

  3. Ctrl+Z bug

    Good Day,

    I have this Ctrl + Z bug where it freezes my application whenever i click this 2 keys. I tried it in Chrome, Paint, Notepad, VS Code etc. Same behaviour for any application that is able to do a Ctrl + Z undo. I have also tried using the On-Screen Keyboard
    to do a Ctrl + Z undo and the same thing happend. Tried googling but didn't find any similar bug happening to others. One thing to note was that if i click Ctrl + Z again when it freezes, it unfreeze and i am able to click again and use the application as
