Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

Microsoft WordAny text that is in all uppercase or lowercase can be changed by using the shortcut key Shift+F3. Below are the steps on how to do this in Microsoft Word.

  1. Highlight all the text you want to change.
  2. Hold down the Shift key and press F3.
  3. Each time you press the F3 key while holding down the Shift, the text switches from proper case (first-letter uppercase and the rest lowercased), to all uppercase (all capital letters), and then all lowercase.

Note: If you are using a laptop or an Apple Mac you may need to hold the Fn key, in addition to the Shift key, when you press F3.
