Visual Studio 2012 has a quirk that many users despise. The Uppercase menu. Now personally I don’t mind it, but some developers simply hate it. Unfortunately, it’s not an option you can just enable or disable. Fortunately, there are people out there that have a solution for this (See Reference below).
Before we continue, the solution involves editing the registry. Modifying the registry can cause problems or unexpected results, so continue at your own risk. (Seeing as the intended audience will probably be developers, I guess you have no qualms with modifying the registry). Now that this warning is out of the way, let’s continue.
Starting Visual Studio 2012, we are presented with the following Start Page.
The Uppercase menu is shouting at us from the top of the IDE. Go ahead and open up the Registry Editor. Navigate to the following path:
For Windows 8 Express go to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftVSWinExpress11.0General
For Web Express go to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftVSWDExpress11.0General
Now create a new DWORD value and call it SuppressUppercaseConversion and set to 1.
After you have completed, your registry entry should look as follows:
Now, restart Visual Studio 2012 and after the Start Page loads, you will see the results.
This is a small change, but it makes Visual Studio slightly less ‘in-your-face’.
