How to Change a Word Document in Capital Letters to Normal

By Kate Bruscke

In Microsoft Word 2010, you can apply a function called "Change Case" to alter the formatting of a selected group of text. You can change the text to appear in all capital letters, all lowercase letters, in sentence case (capitalizing the first word in a sentence), capitalizing the first letter of every word or in toggle case (which places the first letter in a sentence into lowercase and capitalizes the rest of each word). You can switch between these cases at any time during the editing of your document.

Step 1

Open the document you want to work with in Microsoft Word 2010.

Step 2

Select the text to change case by highlighting with your mouse. You can also click "Ctrl" and "A" at the same time to select the whole document.

Step 3

Click "Change Case" in the "Font menu." It appears as a capital "A" next to a lowercase "a" on your toolbar.

Step 4

Select the case you want. For example, to change a document with text in all capital letters to sentence case, click "Sentence Case."
