What is tOGGLE cASE? The tOGGLE cASE option changes all lowercase letters to UPPERCASE and all UPPERCASE letters to lowercase within your selected text.

Using a Keyboard Shortcut to Change Case in Word

Highlight all the text you want to change. Hold down the Shift key and press F3. Depending on what case your text starts in, the text toggles from sentence case (first-letter uppercase and the rest lowercase), to all uppercase (all capital letters), and then all lowercase (all lowercase letters).

Note – if your text does not have a full stop at the end of it, Shift & F3 will toggle to capitalise each word instead of using sentence case.
