    In Office apps you can use Shift-F3 to cycle through.

    By the way, I always find it useful to make windows beep when you hit CapsLock. This option can be found here: Control Panel ---> Accessibility Options.

    On my former keyboard I just broke the CapsLock key out of the keyboard :D

    Within certain programs, there are settings to warn you or reverse the caps lock when it is not needed. For instance, in Word (all versions that I have dealt with up to 2003) you can set it to watch for tHIS and toggle the caps lock off automatically, while fixing the bad word. :)

    For this thread, i was just referring to the auto option....since i never even thought this would exist and it sounded neat
    The other post i just wanted to know how to actually do it manually. :p

    Thanks again kiwiguy !!

    EDIT: The option was already checked off by default i think, but still doesnt work all the time properly...better that nothing i suppose (y)

    About as accurate as the M$ spellcheck :rolleyes:
    But still better than my grammer:eek:

    I stumble upon a great download for Excel that adds a significant amount of functionallity to problems like this one (Caps to lowercase & vice versa).
    The list of extra functions is too long to begin to detail here, but this is definitley worth a look at.

    Visit http://www.asap-utilities.com/ for details.

    Thanks for the (y) reminder !!!
