Changing Visual Studio 2012 CAPS Menus to Normal

Introduction   

Are you okay with Visual Studio 2012 ALL CAPS Menu? If not there's a simple solution.

Thanks Richard Banks for sharing this great solution.

Menus In CAPS 

Registry Crack 

I have attached the .reg file with post. Extract the downloaded zip file and execute the reg. file with admin rights.

Restart Visual Studio 2012. It's Done Smile | <img src= . If you want you can review the downloaded reg file in any text editor before executing. 

If you want to do this manually then Open the Registry Editor (regedit) and add the below key and value.  

Note: If you do anything wrong in this registry editing then Visual Studio 2012 won't work after splash screen.  

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\General\SuppressUppercaseConversion 
REG_DWORD value: 1  

Normal Menus 

If you want that CAPS Menus back then just remove the above key from the specified location. 

Enjoy Smile | <img src=

2010 key and 2012 key are different, (folder is separater by the version number)

Just look under below registry root
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\

for any folder starts with VisualStudio, VSWinExpress, VCExpress, VWDExpress etc... with a folder named 11.0 inside it.
