Can you do strikethrough in Gmail?

Ever tried to make strikethrough on Gmail when typing an email? Well, i have and this is what i figured out. The simple answer is that although there never use to be a direct option to strikethrough in Gmail, Google recently announced that Gmail is getting a strikethrough button in its formatting bar. In addition, it’s also getting Undo/Redo options and the ability to download emails as .EML files.

There really isn’t much more to be said about this, but if you ever wanted to use strikethrough in an email to show that you edited something out, then your time has come. Same for those of you who always wanted to see undo and redo buttons in Gmail because you keep forgetting the keyboard shortcuts for those.

 

 

You can also do it in these following three ways:

Use MS Word.

use-ms-word

Use Google Docs.

Use the strikethrough Plugin on Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox

Strikethrough according to Wikipedia is a typographical presentation of words with a horizontal line through their center, resulting in: text like this. … This presentation signifies one of two meanings. In ink-written, typewritten, or other non-erasable text, the words are a mistake and not meant for inclusion. When used on a computer screen, however, it indicates recently deleted information. It can also be used deliberately to imply a change of thought
