How to quickly fix text you accidentally typed in all caps
Have you ever typed out a long document in Microsoft Word only to discover when you look up that everything you typed was in upper case except for the first letter of each sentence?
If so, you must have accidentally pressed the “Caps Lock” key before you began typing.
Unfortunately, this is very easy to do. In fact, being the Mr. Fumble Fingers that I am, I do it all the time.
Well as luck would have it, there’s a very easy way to fix this “All Caps” mistake without having to start over and type everything again…
Simply press the Ctrl+A key combination to select all the incorrectly typed text and then press Shift+F3 twice. That will automatically convert all of that mis-typed text to the correct case, including the first letter of each sentence.
If you only have a paragraph or two that’s in all caps simply select the mis-typed paragraphs and press Shift+F3.
