I want to convert lower case text to uppercase text in Microsoft Word.
In Microsoft Office 2007 you can use the Change Case button on the Home tab.
If that is not what you are looking for you will need to add more details to your question.
When you've had caps lock on by mistake, highlight the words you typed and press Shift+F3. Pressing Shift+F3 repeatedly swaps between upper case, title case and lower case.
eg. if you type:
tHIS IS A TEST.
... then select all the text and press Shift+F3:
This IS A TEST.
... then press Shift+F3 again:
THIS IS A TEST.
... and Shift+F3 again:
this is a test.
... and Shift+F3 one last time:
This is a test.
It's interesting that the behaviour is a little different if there is no full stop (period character) in the selected text. Shift+F3 then capitalizes every word when switching to title case:
This Is A Test
Hope this helps.
Hold Shift when typing?
Shift+F3 does not work for some strings, like
If you highlight that then hit Shift+F3, nothing happens. You have to either use the Change Case button as shown above or add an extra word, like
Then Shift+F3 will cycle through the capitalization options.
If you have a few minutes, write "3D" into Word, highlight it, then hit Shift+F3 a few times. Why do you think this feature was implemented in this manner?

Ctrl + Shift + A
