To apply strikethrough formatting in Microsoft Word, follow these steps:

  1. Select the Text:
    • Use your mouse to highlight the text you want to strikethrough.
  2. Use the Ribbon:
    • Go to the “Home” tab on the Ribbon.
    • In the “Font” group, find the “abc” with a line through it (which represents strikethrough) and click it.
    • Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut:
      • Windows: Ctrl + D
      • Mac: Command + D
  3. Review the Applied Formatting:
    • The selected text will now have a line through it, indicating that strikethrough formatting has been applied.

Additional Tips:

  • If you want to remove the strikethrough formatting, follow the same steps. Select the text, go to the “Home” tab, click the “abc” with the line through it again, or use the keyboard shortcut.
  • You can also combine strikethrough with other formatting options such as bold, italic, or underline by applying multiple formatting styles in sequence.
  • The specific layout and options might vary slightly depending on your version of Microsoft Word, but strikethrough is a common and widely supported formatting feature.

These steps should help you easily apply strikethrough formatting to text in your Microsoft Word document.
