    How do I back out / Undo these commands?

    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:alanbell/unity
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install unity-window-quicklists
    sudo sed -i 's/OnlyShowIn=UNITY/OnlyShowIn=Unity/g' /etc/xdg/autostart/unity-window-quicklists.desktop (This command line allows for the Unity Window Quicklists to start automatically when you log into the system.)

    It should be something like this

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove unity-window-quicklists
    sudo apt-add-repository -r ppa:alanbell/unity
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo cp /etc/xdg/autostart/unity-window-quicklists.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/unity-window-quicklists.desktop.old
    sudo sed -i 's/OnlyShowIn=Unity/OnlyShowIn=UNITY/g' /etc/xdg/autostart/unity-window-quicklists.desktop
    It would have been good to keep a backup copy of /etc/xdg/autostart/unity-window-quicklists.desktop the first time around

    No worries. BTW I updated the 4th line, since I managed to leave out the "cp" but it does not matter much. With editing files, even if the instructions don't call for it, I prefer to make a backup copy. It is so much easier just to replace the file from the backup than to go through notes to undo changes.
