I love using keyboard shortcuts in Microsoft® Word. My only problem is that there are too many of them to keep track of. Savvy Certified Legal Nurse Consultants know that the ones I give out in my Tech Tips are the most useful. But rather than keep a copy of every one of my Tech Tips handy, you could also log into Amazon.com and run an encapsulated search (that means using quotation marks) for “Microsoft Word Quick Reference Guide.” This search will provide you with a list of some of the most common shortcut guides. All you have to do is find the one that matches your version of Word.
That being out of the way, here’s today’s Word keyboard shortcut. You can easily change the case of a word by selecting (single-clicking on) that word and then hold down Shift and hit F3 until you get the word into the case you want. Here’s an example using the word “word” – the first Shift-F3 on “word” will get you Word. The second one delivers WORD and the third one returns you to the original case – word. This works for sentences and paragraphs too. If you’ve ever mistakenly typed an entire paragraph in all caps this is a lifesaver. How’s that for handy!
All Certified Legal Nurse Consultants can remember my keyboard shortcuts or buy one of those handy reference guides for use on your legal nurse consulting jobs. Either way you’ll be glad you did!
Keep on Techin’,
P.S. Comment and share your favorite Word shortcut.
