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)

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your solution worked. I have tried solutions for over an hour; of which most wanted me to do the same thing that wasn't working. Yours did! (even the Adobe site didn't help)

Thank you so much! The solution other people offered didn't work, plus it had so many steps including getting out of editor.

Omg thank you so much!! I was breaking my head why everything is only coming out uppercase and it was driving me crazy. This is such a quick and simple solution. I really thank you for this post!

My Photoshop elements has done the "all caps" thing several times over the years but most of the time I just uninstall and re install and it corrects itself. Not this time. It's been over 4 months. So I found your fix, and tried Control Shift Y, but it didn't work. When exactly do you push those keys? Like, when I've got a text cursor ready? Or at start up? Sorry, I need more specifics. Thanks for your help!

I, too, was going nuts because I could see no reason for the type to be all cap. As far as I know, I didn't do anything to cause that. I'm glad you have a simple solution. Thank you so much!
