Use the DMS key, which is [Shift] [a b/c]. It looks like [° ' "].

To enter a number in DMS format, type the degrees, press DMS, type the minutes, press DMS, and type the seconds (final press of DMS is optional).

Pressing DMS when there is no edit line toggles the most recent result between decimal and DMS format. To convert any other result in the history, select it (highlight it) and then press DMS.

For more details, press Help, Keys, [Shift] [a b/c].

EDIT: Please note that the DMS key works best in Home view. In CAS view it doesn't do much.
