How To Enable Change Case Shortcuts In Windows?

For a long long time I wanted Windows to be able to convert case directly in-place In any application, whether writing a tweet, or my next WordPress article, I wanted a way that I can change capitalization directly.

Eventually, I ended up writing a program that does exactly that, so far it supports +50 applications  (Supported Applications) and it adds those shortcuts globally, that way you can finally stop going online every time you need to do a text conversion, or rewriting your text whenever you left the caps lock on, Instead you can use the fabulous magic of AnyCase to do that in a fraction of a second.

Installing AnyCase will enable these shortcuts across Windows, so you can do case conversions on the fly as it should be.

Other Ways To Changing Capitalization

There are other ways to change the text capitalization across applications, using shortcuts is one of them, but equally exciting is the ability to change capitalization with a context menu, where you can use ctrl+{right mouse click} to pull down a drop-down that will give you a list of options exactly like a shortcut for all caps, or a lowercase shortcut would, just choose one of the options from the list.

That works exactly as you see in the video above, and you can convert the selected text on the spot.
