Shortcut to change case of text within Word

Posted October 6, 2003 by winslow in Microsoft Word

Keystroke command to quick change the case of words with a Word document.


Very few things are as painful as trying to convert a large text of all-caps text to normal. Heck, it’s almost quicker to retype it. Word versions 1997 and later have a shortcut to make this much quicker.

SHIFT-F3 – changes selected text between title case, upper case, and lower case.

For example:

WILL YOU PLEASE FAX THIS TO BOB

(Shift-F3)

will you please fax this to bob

(Shift-F3)

Will You Please Fax This To Bob

Now, you can appropriately quote that dOOd in the newsgroups that loves to shout IN ALL CAPS.

This works with all versions of Microsoft Word including the Mac versions.
