Getting Text Back From All Caps In Photoshop Elements (Not CAPS LOCK!)

After getting rather confused as to why my text layer in Photoshop Elements 6 would not budge from being in all caps (no not because of CAPS LOCK!) I discovered that to get it back to normal you need to do :

Mac :

Command ('Apple Key') + Shift + Y

Windows :

Ctrl + Shift + Y

This will put the text back to sentence case or lower case (whatever it should be before it was being forced into all caps)

Awesome! Wish I'd found this first before trying all of the fruitless reset/reinstall suggestions from other sites.

I do not have an (apple) key so I used the command key instead and that worked. Thank you! I've been using all caps for 14months now, I can't believe I didn't search for the solution sooner!

Now I can finally stop freaking out ... funny how Elements is the dumbed down version of PS yet you have to jump through hoops for such a simple operation.
