Is there a way to revert all the changes that I made into document since I opened it?

Of course I could just close it without saving it and reopen it again, but may be there is a faster way?

I,m also interested in this, I know only Ctr + alt + Z to undo, but this will stop at certain point. – Bala Oct 8 '13 at 13:03

This is not quite the same as reverting all history since the document opened, but: if you're just looking for a faster way than your "closing without saving" method, then FileRevert will expedite that for you.

The default keyboard shortcut for this command is F12.

Adobe Help docs: Revert to the last saved version

Despite the other answer about the "History" window is more upvoted, I choose your answer as it perfectly fit my needs. Thanks! – Artem Abramov Oct 9 '13 at 7:44

You need to open history panel: Window > history, and click on the first thumbnail (which is state, when you opened document)
