Strikethrough keyboard shortcuts in MS Office


I use a lot of strike-through during my day (well, hopefully I do as I get things done!). Here’s a couple of keyboard short-cuts for strike-through on MS Office products:

  • OneNote: Ctrl + –
  • Excel: Ctrl + 5
  • Word: Ctrl + D (font menu) then Alt + K (tick strike-through) then Enter

Not exactly consistent, but useful nonetheless.

Update from comments below:

  • Lync: Ctrl+T
  • Sticky notes: Ctrl+T
