as you noticed, Ctrl+Z is the shortcut key for Undo Command, and then you accidentally press the shortcut key, and all the task you did before will undo things.

just leave the default name for it, no need to change that (this is just a dummy file).

now, after creating that text file, just delete it, now that file goes to your recycle bin, now right-click your recycle bin icon then select Empty Recycle Bin (click YES to confirm).

to verify that your Undo command has been cleared, right-click on your desktop and you’ll notice that there will be no more Undo Command.
