SHIFT + F3: Change Case in MS Word

The Shift + F3 keyboard shortcut allows you to quickly change the text case of your text without having to use the button built into Microsoft Word.

  1. Select the text in your document

    Select the text you’d like to change the case of, or use Control + A on your keyboard to select all the text.

  2. Press and hold Shift + F3 (or Shift + FN + F3 if on a laptop)

    Press and hold Shift and F3 on your keyboard to change the text case. Repeat this step until you find your preferred text case.

    Important: If you’re on a laptop, you may need to press and hold Shift + FN + F3.
