Strikethrough/Cut Text In Excel

This post demonstrates how to strikethrough or cut the text in excel.To signify some change in the pre written text we need to cancel the text and have to provide the new text.

This strikethrough feature in excel serves our purpose here.

Let’s see how we can strike a value in a cell.


Select the cell or range you want to strikethrough and press a keyboard shortcut Ctrl+5 to achieve that.

Alternatively you could open the format cells by right clicking the value and go to Font tab and check the Strikethrough effects as shown below.


Hope this helped.
