Shortcut to Change Case in WordThis trick shows you how to create a Right-click Menu to change case on the selected text. When you select a text and want to change the selection to either all upper case, lower case, or sentence case, all you need to do is a right-click and pick!
The change case format option is actually one of the font options; howerver, you would have to open the font format dialog and select this option everytime you want to change case. Why don't we create a link on the Right-click menu.
- Open your Word document.
- Select "Tools" on the top menu, then select "Customize".
- Select the "Toolbars" tab.
- On the list under "Toolbars", scroll down and check on "Shortcut Menus". Once this option checked, you'll see a small box called "Shortcut Menus" displayed.
- On the "Shortcut Menus", click on the arrow next to "Text". Scroll down and select to expand "Text". We are going to place the new shortcut right under "Paste".
- Back to the "Customize" window, move the window next to this expand menu to make it easy to drag and drop the menu icons. Select the "Commands" tab.
- Select "Format" under "Categories", and select "Change Case" under "Commands"
- Or you can select "All Caps" under "Commands". The "All Caps" is a quick convert to lower and upper case, but it doesn't have the ability to convert to sentense case.
- Hold the mouse when you click on the command above and drag it to the text menu that we expanded on step 5. Drop it right under "Paste".
- Close the "Customize" window and go back to the document. Hight-light a text on the document and right-click, you'll see the new option "Change Case" there.
