Undelete from trash to original locations
Authored by: afingal on Apr 21, '11 08:42:47AM

A couple of picky comments:

"Put away" was cmd-Y not cmd-R. Cmd-R was "find original," same as it is today.

Apple keyboards do not have any key labeled "backspace." They have left delete and right delete. The one in the same position as backspace on other keyboards is the left delete and does the same thing as backspace in Windows. The one marked "delete" with a forward arrow does what delete does in Windows. I think that the Windows terminology is counterintuitive because you wouldn't expect backspace to delete anything (it didn't on a typewriter.) You would expect it to be the same as the left-arrow key. So, what you're referring to as cmd-backspace is what most of us would refer to as cmd-delete and that is somewhat counterintuitive because it's the same command you use to put something in the trash in the first place.
