Add More Levels of Undo to Excel for Windows

We all are familiar with Excel’s fabulous Undo feature, which enables a user to undo his mistakes. Unfortunately, the default level for this is a mere 16 changes. With the hack in this section, you can change the registry so that you can undo up to 100 mistakes.

When you use Excel’s Undo feature, and you reach undo number 16, the first undo is replaced by the 17th, and so on. Also, as soon as you save your workbook, the Undo Stack is wiped out, and the Undo History is lost. This is because when you press Save, you’re actually telling Excel that you are happy with the changes you made, so it decides for you that your Undo History is no longer required.
