Changing the case of text is a common operation for those who work a lot in Word and other word processors. Distinguish between upper case (uppercase or uppercase letters) and lower case (small or lowercase letters). By default, the keyboard text is entered in lowercase. To switch the input mode to uppercase, you need to press the Caps Lock key (and then all the letters you enter will be uppercase). A more frequent technique is to hold down the Shift key. When Caps Lock is turned off, this allows you to enter the character in uppercase, and when it is turned on, on the contrary, in lowercase.
You can also change the case of the text after it is printed. To do this, on the “Home” tab, in the “Font” command group, there is a drop-down list of “Register” commands. You must first select the text in which you want to change the case, and select the desired option from the list.
How to quickly change the case of text in Word
There are 5 register options:
1) As in sentences – the first letters of the sentences will be uppercase, and the rest-lowercase;
2) All lowercase;
3) All uppercase;
4) Start with uppercase-every single word (including prepositions) will start with an uppercase (capital) letter;
5) Change the case – all lowercase letters will be replaced with uppercase, and all uppercase letters will be replaced with lowercase.
In most cases, the fastest way to change the case is to use the Shift+F3 keyboard shortcut. Select the desired text (if you need to change the case in one word, you can not select it entirely, but simply put the cursor in any part of the word) and press the keyboard shortcut Shift+F3. The program will alternately iterate through the options for changing the case until you stop when you meet the right one.
