Is it possible to automatically return to where the cursor was before running :cdo command?

Currently, the cursor ends in the last file in the quickfix, then I have to navigate back to where I was before running the command.

  • Hint: use marks. Feel free to answer your own question.

It turned out that pressing C-o after the :cdo command ends, returns the cursor to its position before running the command. I can now add this C-o to the :cdo command keybinding.
