Have you ever typed an entire sentence and accidentally left the caps lock key turned on? Is your caps lock key broken? In this article I will show you how to convert those annoying UPPERCASE TEXT into lowercase text in Word 2010. You can also convert your text into the following:
  • Sentence case will put a capital letter at the beginning of each sentence that you have highlighted and make all the rest lower case
  • lowercase will make all the text lower case
  • UPPERCASE will make all the text upper case
  • Capitalize Each Word will put a capital letter at the start of each word
  • tOGGLE cASE will change the case of every letter selected. Upper will become lower, lower will become upper.

  6. I selected Sentence Case. My letter did not switch from capital letters to small. The letters switched to a smaller case.

    Sentence case = makes capital letters for the beginning of sentences only and the rest lower case
    lower case = makes all text lower case
    UPPER CASE = makes all the text CAPITAL LETTERS
    Capitalize Each Word = makes the First Letter Of Each Word A Capital Letter
    tOGGLE cASE = swaps your CAPS to lower case and lower case to CAPS

    Hope that helped. :)
