The new Photoshop CC 2019 has a new undo feature which doesn't require you to press multiple buttons to step back more than one step.
While this certainly is a widely requested feature, it can have problems.
When I'm editing photos, I like to compare the original photo by looking through history.
This was easy in other versions of Photoshop, since you could just press ctrl/cmd+z and compare 2 things in your history panel. 
Now in Photoshop CC2019 the comparison is harder since you have to press multiple buttons in order to compare these changes. 

I'd like an option for users of Photoshop to switch back to the old undo.
