Somehow I hit a magic key combination in Microsoft Lync that is sending strike-through text. When I look at the "A" icon (text properties), I don't see an option for strike-through.

How can I disable strike-through text in MS Lync?

Ctrl+T is the keyboard shortcut for striking through text, according to this document from Microsoft. While it doesn't specify that it's a toggle, I would try pressing Ctrl+T again to see if that disables strikethrough.

    There's something funny where you have to start a new line of text, but ctrl-T does toggle. – billjamesdev Jul 10 '12 at 17:51
  • Worst case, is to close the window and re-open.So that it would display normally. – Phani Aug 8 '13 at 17:59

Ctrl+Space will end the strikthrough.

  • This is exactly what worked for more, Ctrl-T didn't do anything for me on Lync 2010 – Dan McGrath Apr 4 '14 at 14:45

I encountered the same issue, try using this: Press CTRL and press Z twice. I was able to get rid of strikethroughs.

Hit Ctrl+A will get rid of the strikethrough. If you hit Ctrl+T, you'll get the strikethrough again. It happened to me, and that's how I fixed it.

Right click in Text typing area and select 'Change IM Font' which will display Font setting pop up

Right click in Text Box Change IM Font.... under Effects un check StrikeOut
