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 2013. 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 2013 won't work after splash screen.  

REG_DWORD value: 1  

Normal Menus
