I want to convert lower case text to uppercase text in Microsoft Word.
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.
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?
