How to add Strikethrough in google docs? Quick & Easy method 2018

Many people using Google docs, Wordpad and MS word still don’t know what does the term Strikethrough means. But they will understand if it is written as Strikethrough. Strikethrough is a crossed out representation of texts right through the center without affecting its readability. Now, you may think what is its significance. For that, we need to think about the situation where typewriters and other non-erasable text printing machines were the only means of typing. So once an error happened, it was not able to erase it and the only possible option was to cross the mistaken letter using the Strikethrough feature. Later it was adapted to computers and implemented as a feature in almost all typing tools.

Almost all typing software like MS Word, Wordpad, LibreOffice, Google Docs have this feature but many people don’t know how to use them. Sometimes, it may be in the toolbar itself but people look every other menu to find this.
