Email Etiquette

Stop YELLING at people :-) Have you ever written an email to someone and when you look up at the screen you realize you accidentally tapped the Caps Lock key? Now it seems like you’re YELLING AT SOMEONE IN THE EMAIL? It’s happened to most of us — especially those who look at their keyboard while typing instead of the monitor. If you’re nodding right now, chances are you’ve manually deleted everything you wrote in uppercase and wrote it all over again in lowercase. That’s a waste of time when you can simply highlight the text in question, hold down the Shift button on the keyboard and tap F3.
Doing so will immediately change the case from lower to upper (or vice-versa). Yes, really. Tap a third time to change the highlighted text to Title case, Where The First Letter Of Every Word Is Capitalized. This little-known SHIFT + F3 shortcut will save you time — and frustration — and works in Outlook, Word and other Microsoft programs.
