How to Capitalize Multiple Words in Microsoft Word

by Crystal Bonser

Microsoft Word 2010 allows users to customize the capitalization of one or more selected words. This means that you can quickly change an entire document to all uppercase or lowercase letters in as little as a few seconds, a feature that may come in handy when making last minute design changes to a Word document.

Step 1

Launch Word and open the document you want to modify by clicking on the file name.

Step 2

Select the words you want to capitalize. To do this, hold down your mouse button while you drag the cursor over the words.

Step 3

Click on the "Home" tab at the top of the screen.

Step 4

Click on the Change Case icon located in the "Font" section. This will open the "Font" window.

Step 5

Click on the check box beside "All Caps" in the "Effects" section.

Click on "OK" to apply your changes.


  • You can use this same process to make all the letters in your document lowercase or to capitalize the first letter in each word. Just select the appropriate box in the "Font" window.
