How to remove strikethrough in Excel

You can watch a video tutorial here.

Excel provides several ways to format text. It is possible to change the color, size, font, and effects such as subscript and strikethrough. You may receive an Excel document where some of the text has a line through it to cancel it (strikethrough), most frequently done by those editing the document. Here we see how to remove the strikethrough.

Step 1 – Select the cells

Right-click and select Format Cells  from the context menu
Go to Home > Cells > Format > Format Cells
– Go to the Font  tab
– Uncheck the Strikethrough box
