More Undos in PowerPoint

Do you “undo” a lot in MS PowerPoint?

Ever run out of undo steps and wish for more?

If your response was yes, here’s what you need to know about PowerPoint to get a few (or a lot) more undo steps added to your list.

Older versions of PowerPoint:

To change the undo number, you first need to go to the Tools menu, Options choice, Edit tab.


On the Edit tab, you must locate the Undo section. It’s here that you can adjust the “Maximum number of undos:” field to any value from three to 150.

Once you’ve made your changes, click OK.

PowerPoint 2007:

Use the Office Button, PowerPoint Options button to get to PowerPoint 2007’s Options dialog box.

We need the Advanced category of options, Editing section.


Set a value between 3 and 150 in the “Maximum number of undos:” field.

Click OK.

That’s it. You now have the power to undo more steps than you can probably even remember!

And… as a special bonus you can use this technique in other MS Office programs to increase the number of available undos… one trick, many places of application.
