    I've always found the Undo and Redo features in Windows Explorer confusing, but can someone explain to me what '' is supposed to be?

    To add to the above, if you've ever accidentally (with the mouse) grabbed a folder or file and let go and dropped it into a random (unknown) folder you don't have to go searching for it, just use that undo (or the shortcut control+Z as it shows in the screenshot). Many programs use cut/copy/paste/undo functions that are all right there on the keyboard control + x/c/v/z.

    It's also contextual. It's "Undo __________." Whatever your last Windows Explorer action was (with some limits), it will try to undo. For me, it's a mix of Renames and Moves.
