In this short article we will go through how to change text to Superscript in any program, we will go through 3 ways one requires a manual action and is excellent for occasional use, and the other one is automatic using AnyCase App, which will let you convert to Superscript directly in-place without needing to copy and paste from the the subscript characters from the list below.

Copying Superscript manually into your document
Another way to have Superscript in your documents is to copy a Superscript character and then pasting it into your desired document, this is an alternative way although it required a bit of manual work for copying and pasting each character separately.
For your convenience I’ve included below a list of all superscript characters, so you can easily copy and paste them into your document.

What about Superscript shortcuts
Superscript shortcuts are available if you’re using a dedicated programs such as AnyCase, where you can define your own shortcuts to quickly change text to Superscript, that is where you need the shortcut to work across applications. some programs such as Microsoft Word which is part of the Microsoft 365 suite have dedicated shortcuts for superscript.
so if you’re using a Microsoft 365 (Word, PowerPoint etc.) you can try using this process to change a selected section of text to Superscript
- Select the text you would like to change to Superscript
- Use this shortcut Ctrl+Shift+Plus sign(+)
- The selective text should change to Superscript
Note that this shortcut is common across word processors, you should give it a try in the program you are currently working in to see if it works, you might be lucky and it does, even if it doesn’t don’t worry just keep on reading other solutions are available.

we went through three methods of converting text to Superscript, one automatic where you don’t need to leave the application you’re working, simply converting in-place using the AnyCase App. A copy and paste method where you can copy from the table above the character you need in Superscript and paste it in the program you need it in, it’s a manual process requires a bit of back and forth, but it could definitely work if you only need a few characters in superscript. last we talked about shortcuts, some programs come with shortcuts to superscript the most common one is Microsoft Word, which is part of the 365 package, many of Microsoft products use the same shortcuts as mentioned above, but if you want to define your own shortcuts and you want them to work across applications not only in word processes, rather you need a more general purpose shortcuts that would work in Reddit, Twitter, Adobe Acrobat, Autocad etc. then AnyCase App for Windows is the way to go. you can download it’s latest version here.
