The process of changing case using any case is a very simple two-step process:

Documentation Top Section Banner
  1. Select the text you want to be converted
  2. Use a shortcut, the context menu, or the application window to change the capitalization

Below we will go over each of these options separately, but no matter which of the three option you use the process starts the same, and start with the selection of the text.

What Are The Shortcuts Available For Case Conversion?

AnyCase uses Windows shortcuts to convert between Uppercase, Title Case, Sentence Case, And Lowercase. To use a shortcut like Win+Alt+U for example to change the text to uppercase, you will need to:

  1. First perform the selection
  2. When the text selected press these 3 buttons at the same time

An easy way to remember the case conversion shortcuts is that they all start with the Windows key + Alt Key, or in short Win+Alt and the first letter of the change you want performed, For example Win+Alt+U will Change the text case to Uppercase.

U = Uppercase
T = Title Case
S = Sentence Case
L = Lowercase

Windows Shortcut (keys to press)Action
Win+Alt+LTo convert selection to lowercase
Win+Alt+UTo convert selection to All Caps (UPPERCASE)
Win+Alt+TTo convert selection to Title Case
Win+Alt+STo convert selection to Sentence case

How To Change Case Using A Context Menu?

Being able to convert case using a context menu is one of the more powerful features of AnyCase, it opens the ability to perform a conversion directly in any program using a context menu, for this method you don’t need to remember any shortcuts, the steps to use the context menu to change capitalization is as follows:

  1. First select your text
  2. Hold the control(Ctrl) key on your keyboard, then press the right-click button of your mouse

This will bring up a context menu dedicated to case conversions, with options to uppercase, lowercase, sentence case etc. On the right you can see an example of the context menu in action on twitter, but remember that this option will work in all the supported application the same way.

In order to bring up the context menu in any program you normally press the right-click button of the mouse, to bring up the dedicated case conversion menu of AnyCase hold the control(Ctrl) key before pressing the right-click.

The options available on the context menu are:

  • Convert to uppercase
  • Convert to title case
  • Convert to sentence case
  • Convert to lowercase
  • Clear text styling
  • Remove double spaces
  • How many were

The context menu includes the “how many words?” feature which is a unique option that currently doesn’t appear in shortcuts or the application window.

Hold the Ctrl  —>  Then Right-Click Mouse Button

This will open the AnyCase dedicated Context menu as you see In the example

How Many Words?

The how many word feature is a word counter, it will count the amount of words are in the selected text, how many characters are in the selected text, and how many characters without spaces.

  1. First select your text
  2. Hold the control(Ctrl) key on your keyboard, then press the right-click button of your mouse
  3. Select the how many words option from the context menu

You will be presented with:

  • How many words are In the selected text.
  • How many characters are in the selected text Including spaces
  • How many characters are in the selected text without Including spaces

How To Convert Case Using A The Application Window?

The AnyCase App window acts as a floating window that is always available. the AnyCase window floats above all other windows as you work, it is perfect for those moments you need to scheme through a document and change capitalization in multiple locations. Simply leave the window in a comfortable location and start hacking away through the entire document, as you fly through case conversions.

What Is Remove Styling And How It Works?

This function Is performed on text you already copied, in the case that you have copied formatted text and you want to paste it as plain text, clicking the button “clear text styling” will clear the formatting of the text you copied.

While Ctrl+Shift+V (the built in function for Windows to paste plain text) works on some applications, this clearing function will work for you in all applications, especially in cases Where the formatting persists and doesn’t get cleared, or when Ctrl+Shift+V  doesn’t work, and doesn’t insert text at all.

The steps are as follows:

  1. Copy any text you would like To clear formatting for
  2. Press the clear Styling Text Button
  3. Paste in your desired location
