I tried finding many websites to find shortcut for strike through.

Instead I found it much easier to assign keyboard shortcuts for strike through or any operation you need a shortcut.

Steps to Follow:

  1. Press Ctrl+D [Choose Font from Format Menu].
  2. Hold down Ctrl+Alt+plus sign from Numeric keypad.Then mouse turns to Clover symbol. []
  3. Click on Strike through checkbox in Font dialog box.
  4. Word displays customize keyboard dialog box enter new short cut key.
  5. Select any key combination which is currently [UNASSIGNED]. you can prefer Alt+Shift+S or Ctrl+Alt+S.


  1. Click assign , so that the shortcut key is used for strikethrough.
  2. Click close and click OK .

Select the word and use shortcut to apply strikethrough.
