In the latest versions of Word (in my case 2013), the option is available Uppercase / Lowercase visible in the group Character of the section Home.

By clicking on the down arrow next to the icon Uppercase / Lowercase (icon with lowercase A and uppercase) a menu with five possible functionalities will appear:

  • Normal - capitalizes the first letter of each sentence.
  • All Lowercase - makes all words lowercase.
  • All Caps - capitalizes all words.
  • All Initials Uppercase - capitalizes the first letter of each word and leaves the other letters lowercase.

If you have one Mac OS X you can switch between all tiny, ALL CAPS e All Capital Initials premendo the combination of tasti FN + SHIFT + F3.



If you are not satisfied with the result with Word you can always return to the initial state by pressing with Windows CTRL + Z, with Mac OS X COMMAND + Z.
