    How to Cross Out Words on Microsoft Word

    Microsoft Word allows the user to format documents by changing fonts, adding colours and making other editing changes. One feature of the software is the ability to cross out words. After you use this feature, the word remains, but a line is drawn horizontally through the midsection of the letters. You have the option of adding one line or two.
