While not strictly related to programming, this is very surprising and harmful behavior that demonstrates how important thinking about edge cases is.

    What is the use case of a “Undo Copy” feature anyway? I can see some cases that I’d want to “Undo Cut” but why do we need another shortcut to delete a file just because it was copied?

      For example, if you Control+V-d the files into the wrong folder in windows explorer. I’ve undoed copies many times this way.

      However, the post doesn’t mention whether this behavior is present with Ctrl+Z as well. If so, that’s even words, because you wouldn’t even get to read the action you’re about to perform.

    I’ve never even noticed an undo-copy option before, but as someone who frequently misses the button I intended to click, this is terrifying. Gonna have to git commit before every time I open explorer.

    That person speaks from experience, an experience that’s made them extremely bitter.
