- Lower case – all characters appear in small letters.
After having created a document and a need arise so as to change text cases then follow the steps below:
- Select text to be editted.
- Click Home ribbon (notice the tool bar)
- On font panel, identify and click on an icon as the one shown below.
- Select a suitable case from the drop-down list then click within the document to unselect the text.
The above guide only works for an already generated document however in a case of typing and there is constant need to alternate between small and capital letters then simply:
- Press Capslock key to type capital letters and press it again to switch back to small letters mode. when it’s on, a diode lights on the top right coner of the keyboard.
- Press shift + (any letter) to type in either small or capital letters depending with the active mode set by Capslock key.
