Video Transcript: In this video we'll take a look at how to alter the text in Microsoft Word to make it either all caps, all lowercase, the first word and sentence capitalized, and so on. Now here on your screen you can see we have a document and, if I want to make something all caps, for example, like this word here, bishop, I could go to Font, expand this into the dialog box, and then select All caps. Click OK. And that would do the job. If I wanted to turn that off I could go back and repeat that process, and now unselect All caps, and then that would return it to its original state. But this really isn't the most efficient method or way of doing this, there's a better way. And it also has other advantages as well which I'll show you here briefly. So let's say that I wanted to turn off the all caps here I'm going to go ahead and select that, and if I press Shift + F3, that alternates it, now notice it's all lowercase, if I press Shift + F3 again, then the first letter of each word is capitalized, and if I press that again, it returns it to its all caps state. And I can do that to anything, I can select the entire first paragraph, press Shift + F3, and notice now it's all caps. Press Shift + F3 again, it's all lower case, Shift + F3 one more time, and it returns to its original state, in this case the first letter of each sentence is capitalized. Now this is a very useful method for doing this because say, for example, that I wanted to turn this off, not make it all caps anymore. If I went to the first way I showed you, the Font group, and expanded this in its dialog box, notice that All caps is not selected. If I went ahead and selected that, it's in all caps, but I can't deselect that to turn that off. So when I inherit a document in all caps, it's in that state and I can't really change it. But if I just select it and you Shift + F3, then I can go ahead and cycle through those options, and that will give me what I want. Now for Mac users out there, if you use Command (Cmd) + Shift + A, all those three keys together, then that should also do the same thing. OK that's about it for changing the case of text in Microsoft Word. Thanks for watching.
