Microsoft launched the first version of Word in 1983, and its text formatting tools were limited to "underline," "italic" and "bold." With each new version of Word, Microsoft updates the original set of formatting tools, giving you the ability to alter the look and size of the text in your documents, as well as adding special effects. Once such newer tool is "change case," a command that automatically applies capitalisation to selected text in a document, eliminating the need to change each word one at a time.
