Registry override for 2012 and 2013:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

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.

There's a couple of options if the Reg Key doesn't work for you. 1. install the VSCommands extension or 2. There's a NuGet package you can download. More info: http://sanderstechnology.com/2012/visual-studio-2012-visual-options/11781/

You can download VSCommands for Visual Studio 2012 extension from Visual Studio Gallery which will allow you to have Sentence Case, lower case or even remove the whole main menu from the screen (and have it come back on mouse over or alt-key pressed) You can download it from http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/a83505c6-77b3-44a6-b53b-73d77cba84c8

Xavier Decoster has created a NuGet package which provides commands that toggle the uppercasing behavior:

For the Visual Studio Express version the registry key is slightly different: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VSWinExpress\11.0\General

Thank You Richard Banks
For all those people who can’t stand the ALL CAPS menus in Visual Studio 2012 there’s a way to switch them to normal casing.
Crack open your registry editor and create the following registry key and value
REG_DWORD value: 1
