Change Case Saves the Day!

Change Case Saves the Day!

Here’s another tip regarding the Change Case trick I told you about a few days ago!

A reader wrote in asking what you can do when you’ve accidentally hit the Caps Lock key and you don’t realize it until it’s too late. You know, after you’ve already typed out a significant amount of text.

Understandably, you probably don’t want to retype all of that text, do you? So, now what?

Well, the Change Case feature is your solution yet again!

  • First, highlight the text to be changed.

  • Next, locate and start the Change Case feature.

  • In the list of Change Case options, you’ll find one that says “Sentence case.” That’s the one you need to use when converting your text.

That’s it! Your text is switched to the formatting you meant to use in the first place.

Since there are several ways to use this feature, I will add that the Sentence case option can be used via the Shift + F3 trick or through the Change Case options found in either your Format menu or on the Home ribbon (depending on the version of MS Word you’re using).

Voila. Your Caps Lock disaster is fixed!
