It's called "Strikethrough"

Highlight the text you want to strikethrough, then on your menu bar select Format, then Font, and look for the Strikethrough option.

There's a second option

If you are trying to edit an existing document so that people can see the changes you've made, you can use the "track changes" option in the "Tools" menu. If you use the track changes function, any changes you make will be instantly identified. For example, if you wish to delete text, use the delete key or backspace key to erase the text you wish to get rid of. Instead of deleting the text, it will have a line typed though it. You then type the text you wish to replace it with or simply move on and let the deleted text stand.

I have to use this function when I'm making changes to clients' documents and if there are a lot of changes, it can be very difficult to read since it also annotates the changes in the margins. However, it is useful for documentation purposes.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
