Visual Studio 2013 Preview: Get rid of the all-caps menu bars

August 23, 2013 5 comments

I don’t believe it. The Visual Studio 2013 Preview build still uses all-caps menu bars.

That just won’t do. To eliminate this UI design monstrosity from your desktop, open Windows PowerShell (if you don’t know how to do this, open a command prompt, type powershell and press Enter), and type:

Set-ItemProperty -Path HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\12.0\General -Name SuppressUppercaseConversion -Type DWord -Value 1

(all on one line)

Then restart Visual Studio. Your menus will no longer be shouting at you.

You’re welcome.
