Erase the past: Ctrl + z

When you’re shuffling files around your massive hard drive, you’re bound to accidentally drop one in the wrong place. Or accidently make copies loads of files rather than simply dragging them to a new location.

Rather than trying to track that missing file down or manually delete the legion of copies, whip out the universal Get Out of Jail Free card that: Crtl + Z. The keyboard shortcut undoes your last action, restoring order when chaos suddenly appears. (Crtl + C and Crtl + V for copying and pasting, respectively, also work properly within Windows.)
