Normally, Ctrl+Y would "undo the undo" and put me back where I was. But in Twitter's compose tweet dialog box, Ctrl+Y does nothing.

This is on PC, Linux, Chromium browser.

  • I've just tried this in Chrome under Windows 7 and Ctrl+Y works as expected. I suspect this is a browser or even OS issue. Can you use Ctrl+Y on other text boxes on other sites?

Try Ctrl + Shift + Z. Tested on Linux with Chrome browser.


I ran into the problem of accidentally undoing some formatted content on a Mac using Chrome. While command + z is undo, the shortcut to redo in Chrome on the Mac is control + z.

  • The question is about PC.
