Undo is used to reverse the last actions the user does in Excel, Excel by default stores the last 100 actions, so using the Undo option user can reverse his actions up to 100 times and restore things to how they were. Undo action can also be performed even if one has saved the file.

Redo does the opposite of Undo. Let’s assume the user did Undo on some last actions but now the user wants to restore some of the Undo actions so he can repeat the Undo actions using the Redo option which restores the Undo actions.
