Change Directly To all Caps.

Shift + F3. How often do you use that one?

Remember its little gem? It takes the highlighted text and rotates it between the Title Case of lowercase and UPPERCASE letters.

But, what if you’re tired of rotating through the choices and just want to jump straight to UPPERCASE?

Can we find a quick way to make that change?

Well, obviously we’re looking for a key combination. (After all, if we have to use the Format menu, Change Case choice or even a button on a toolbar/Ribbon, it’s going to take way too long).

Here’s my humble suggestion. Next time, try Ctrl + Shift + A.

  • To change a single word, simply put the cursor in the word and hit Ctrl + Shift + A.
  • Changing multiple words can be done too. Highlight all of them before you use Ctrl + Shift + A.

In either case, to toggle the text back to its original form, use Ctrl + Shift + A again.

There you have it. A quick, direct way to get to the CAPS!
