Changing Visual Studio 2013 Menu Bar to Title Case

In Visual Studio 2013, it inherits the All Caps menu bar, similar to the ones you saw in Visual Studio 2012. I do find it annoying at times as it seems to be shouting at me.

In this post, I would like to share with you the steps to change the menu bar from all UPPER CASE to Title Case.

Verify that you have administrator access as we will be using Registry Editor (regedit)

  1. Go to Start Menu, and search for regedit (Application name for registry editor) and run it.

  2. Then at the menu tree, hover to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftVisualStudio12.0General
    vs-2013-3
  3. Right click General Folder, Click New –> DWORD (32-bit) Value.
  4. Set the DWORD name with SuppressUppercaseConversion

  6. Run Visual Studio 2013.

You should be getting back the Title Case menu bar just like in Visual Studio 2010.
