How to Make Small Letters Capital in Microsoft Word

Save

Microsoft launched the first version of Word in 1983, and its text formatting tools were limited to "underline," "italic" and "bold." With each new version of Word, Microsoft updates the original set of formatting tools, giving you the ability to alter the look and size of the text in your documents, as well as adding special effects. Once such newer tool is "change case," a command that automatically applies capitalization to selected text in a document, eliminating the need to change each word one at a time.

Word 2010 and 2007

  • Open the Word document and highlight the text.

  • Click the "Home" tab. Locate the "Font" group of commands.

  • Click the down triangle next to the "Aa" button.

  • Click "UPPERCASE" from the drop-down menu to change all lowercase letters to capital letters; click "Capitalize Each Word" to capitalize the first letter of each highlighted word; or click "Sentence Case" to capitalize the first letter of each sentence.

  • Click "Save" to save the changes.

Word 2003 and 2002

  • Open the Word document and highlight the text.

  • Click "Format" located in the top horizontal menu bar.

  • Click "Change Case." Click "UPPERCASE" from the drop-down menu to change all lowercase letters to capital letters; click "Title Case" to capitalize the first letter of each highlighted word; or click "Sentence Case" to capitalize the first letter of each sentence.

  • Click "OK." Click "Save" to save the changes.

All Versions of Word

  • Open the Word document and highlight the text.

  • Press the "Shift" and the "F3" keys simultaneously to capitalize the first letter of each word. Press "F3" again to capitalize all of the letters -- pressing the "F3" key a third time returns the text to its original format.

  • Click "Save" to save the changes.
