Discord Cross Out Text


Cross Out Text Discord
Put two tildes (~~) on both sides of any text to cross out that text in Discord.

To cross out text or words in Discord you need put double “~” tilde keys on both sides of the text you wish to strikethrough or strikeout. You can also use the Context Menu in the browser & desktop version of Discord to cross out words. This will put a line through text in your Discord chat. If you are using a US English keyboard, your Tilde will be Shift + `. These key combinations will be different depending on your keyboard language but the general idea is that you put two ~ on the beginning and end of the word to cross out the text. For example, if you want to strikethrough a word like “glad“, then you put ~ as “~~glad~~“, to cross out the particular word and get “g̶l̶a̶d̶“. This works the same for all the texts in Discord.

Different Keyboard Shortcuts for ~


Tilde is primarily available through holding down the Alt Gr key or the Shift key along with a dead key. The dead key will be different depending on your computer’s language settings. In Apple Mac devices, Alt/Option keys act similar to the Alt Gr key or the Shift key in Windows. So here’s how to insert tilde and cross out text in Discord on different keyboards:

Keyboard Tilde (~)
English (US) ⇧ Shift + `
English (UK) ⇧ Shift + #
English (Canada/Australia) ⇧ Shift + `
Spanish (Latin America) Alt Gr + +
