If you know anything about frames, you know that each frameset is made up of multiple files—but here's something you may not realize: Each of the frames has an independent undo memory or stack. This means that you can make a change in one of your frames, switch to another, select Undo from the Edit menu, or press Ctrl+Z (Command+Z), and the change in the other frame will not be undone. You must select the frame containing the change you want reversed. A graphical way to see this is to open the History panel (Window > History) and then click into each and every one of your frames—the History panel displays different steps for every one. Even the frameset itself, an independent HTML file, has its own undo stack.

Bonus tip: To undo the application of a frameset, after choosing one of the Frame objects, select Undo twice. The first Undo displays the page split vertically into two frames, and the second brings it back to a framesetless state, although the Dreamweaver-drawn frame borders are still visible around the document. You can turn those off by choosing View > Visual Aids > Frame Borders. Hey, that was a bonus, bonus tip!
