Quickly change the case of an entire selection (Word 2016/2013/2010)

Rather than retyping your text when you need to change the case of a phrase or paragraph, use a simple keyboard shortcut or toolbar button to make the transformation immediately. Word supports 5 cases for automatic changes:

•             Uppercase – THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPS OVER THE LAZY DOG.

•             Sentence Case – The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

•             Lowercase – the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

•             Capitalize Each Word – The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog.

•             Toggle Case – tHE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPS OVER THE LAZY DOG.

It’s important to note that Capitalize Each Word isn’t the same as Title Case. Words such as the, on, to, and others that would remain lowercase in Title Case (depending on the style guide you’re using) are automatically capitalized when you choose Capitalize Each Word.

To quickly change case, select the words you’d like to change and press [Shift][F3]. This keyboard shortcut is the fastest option, but it only cycles through Uppercase, Lowercase, and Sentence Case.

To change your selection to Capitalize Each Word or Toggle Case, select the Home tab on the main ribbon. In the Font group, click on Change Case. Choose from the resulting dropdown list, which includes all five case options listed above.
