Shortcut key to quickly vary the case of text (Word, Outlook and PowerPoint)

If you find yourself - unknowingly - having pressed the CapsLock key or you want to vary the case of existing text, you can use the Format, Change Case command to change what was typed. However,

Did you know ...

you can use Microsoft's built-in change-case keyboard shortcut to quickly vary the case of text?

Here's how:

  1. Select the text you want to change
  2. Press SHIFT + F3
  3. Continue to press the SHIFT + F3 until you reach your desired letter case
  4. Deselect the text in order to continue typing

Please note you can instruct your computer to play a high sound whenever the CapsLock key is switched on; see tip # 1 on http://www.roem.co.uk/tip_1_10.html for further details.

Until next week.
