Changing text case in Word

Quick — you need to make that entire sentence ALL IN CAPS (or In Title Case or whatever).  How do you do that without retyping it?


  • Block the text with your mouse or keyboard as if you are going to copy or delete it.
  • In the menu bar, click Format, then click Change Case.
  • Format menu, Change Case option
  • Click the appropriate option on the dialog box:

Change Case

Voila!  Your text has been changed from one case to another!

Update: More complete instructions on this feature in versions 2002, 2003, 2007 and 2010 are posted here.
