Make Uppercase and Make Lowercase menu items

  • Press Ctrl+Shift+U to make the current character or selected characters uppercase
  • Press Ctrl+U to make the current character or selected characters lowercase

I got to be honest here and say I had to ask around when these commands would be useful.  One scenario (thanks bill!) is where the caps_lock key is bound to be a control key.  For example, you type a word, then ctrl+shift+left arrow to select, then do Ctrl+Shift+U to upper case (instead of having to hold the shift key down to type the entire word).  Maybe intellisense has made me lazy.  =)
