Uppercase menus in Visual Studio 2012

One of the changes in Visual Studio 2012 that has drawn the most complains is the forced uppercase of the menus. You can suppress that with the following registry tweak:

  1. Open the registry editor and go to the following key:
HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftVisualStudio11.0General (for 2012 Pro)
HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftVSWinExpress11.0General (for Win8 Express)
HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWDExpress11.0General (for Desktop Express)
HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftVSWDExpress11.0General for Web Express)
  1. Create a new DWORD value called SuppressUppercaseConversion set to 1
  2. Restart Visual Studio and you should see the change
