Registry override for 2012 and 2013:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\General]
"SuppressUppercaseConversion"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\12.0\General]
"SuppressUppercaseConversion"=dword:00000001

Not sure why Microsoft haven't included an option in Visual Studio 2012 to change the casing of the menu to a developer's preference!?

Agree - not sure why this has been closed as this bug still exists. Menu appears in ALL CAPS even in the final release, which is presumably a mistake as it obviously looks awful and impairs usability and goes against widely accepted design guidelines and all of the conventions in Windows. Did nobody at MS test the final release before it was sent out???? Wow.

Also affects Express editions, but workaround does not correct the problem there.
