Have you ever been worming on something on the computer, only to look up and realize that you accidentally hit to Caps-Lock button? Sometimes if you’re lucky and catch it after only about 2 or 3 words. In a worst case scenario however, you may have already typed 3 for 4, or even more sentences before noticing. Now you have to go back and retype everything right? Wrong! There are some windows applications that have shortcuts to automatically do this. There are also web applications that will convert text as well
In Microsoft Word (I’ve heard Excel can do this too) all you have to do is highlight the words you want to change and hit Shift + F3. This will convert everything to lower case. Hitting it again will capitalize the first letter of the words. For example…
“AH CRAP, I JUST REALIZED I’VE BEEN TYPING IN CAPS THIS WHOLE TIME. NOW I GOTTA REDO EVERYTHING!”
Shift + F3 once:
“ah crap, i just realized i’ve been typing in caps this whole time. now i gotta redo everything!”
Shift + F3 twice:
“Ah crap, i just realized i’ve been typing in caps this whole time. Now i gotta redo everything!”
It’ll fix most issues, but you probably will have to go and fix little things like “i’ve” and proper names. It won’t do that itself for god knows why.
If you aren’t using Microsoft Word or are on a Mac, there are Web sites that can change the text for you. http://www.convertcase.net/ is a free site that will convert any text into Uppercase, lowercase, or sentence format. Check it out, I’m sure everyone has needed this at one point or another.
