MS Word is a powerful word processing software that offers a wide range of formatting options. One of the formatting features that you may find useful is the ability to double strikethrough text. Double strikethrough is a variation of strikethrough that adds two lines through the middle of the selected text, making it appear crossed out twice. Although strikethrough and double strikethrough are used interchangeably, some may prefer double strikethrough as it easily visible compared to the former.
To apply double strikethrough to text in MS Word, follow these simple steps:
- Select the text you want to apply double strikethrough to.
- Go to ‘Home’ tab, In the ‘Font’ group, click on the small arrow icon in the bottom right corner to open the ‘Font’ dialog box. Shortcut: ‘Ctrl+D’
- In the ‘Font’ dialog box, check the ‘Double strikethrough’ box under the ‘Effects’ section.
- Click ‘OK’ to apply the double strikethrough formatting to the selected text.
That’s it! The selected text will now have double strikethrough formatting applied to it. You can use this formatting option to indicate that a particular text is no longer valid or needs to be deleted.
