How To Turn Caps Lock Text Back To Normal In MS Word ?

At one time or another, we all accidently click the Caps Lock button while typing. If we are multi-tasking and watching television or Hulu while typing, it is completely possible we will type long strings of text before we realize our mistake.

Rather than retyping the all-caps text, Word has a built-in option to fix the problem. This is so simple you will wonder why you have never used it before now!

Here is what you do:

First, highlight the text you typed in all caps.

Now all you need to do is click Shift + F3. Seriously, that is it! Your text will magically transform to lowercase.

So now you have text that is all lowercase. Would it not be nice to change that lowercase text into nice, sentence case text? Click Shift + F3 a second time and the sentence magically turns to sentence case.

If you click Shift + F3 a third time, the text reverts back to all uppercase. If you ever need to use text in all uppercase, this will work as well. Highlight the text, then click Shift + F3 until the text appears in all uppercase.

Here is an added tip:
If you click Ctrl + Shift + K, your text will revert to small caps. Small caps make great headings in documents.

The amount of shortcuts built into Word can be overwhelming, but some of them are very useful. These can certainly save us all a few wasted hours spent re-typing documents.
