How can I detect the last action made in File Explorer?

Because I had no idea what happened and what I pressed but it seemed like a file or something was moved.  But then the current file I was working on seems fine and it's still located in the same place.

Hmmm ...


If you accidentally move a file, you can undo the action by pressing CTRL + Z. When you've rebooted your PC or you've closed the File Explorer, the undo action will no longer cancel or reverse the action.

Keeping track of the File Explorer history would be a great recommendation. To add this feature on the upcoming updates, we encourage you to submit your comments and suggestion on our Windows Feedback hub. Your feedback will help us improve our ability to serve you and other users of Windows.
