Camel Case Menu on Visual Studio 2012

Hi Guys,

Today I will give you a very simple tip but this tip can let you work more comfortable while using Visual Studio 2012.

It is not everybody that likes to receive messages or read texts like THIS(I mean using all CAPITAL LETTERS). Visual Studio nowadays doesn’t have the famous Camel Case menu and in my opinion we should have a configuration to change that. While Microsoft doesn’t give us an easy option to change that, luckily we can do a simple trick to change that.

Just an observation before we proceed: This post is done based on Windows 7 with a installation of VS2012.

To change our menu on Visual Studio to be Camel Case we will basically add a windows register.

Firstly let’s open the regedit, go to windows start menu and them type regedit.

The next step is look for the following path HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\General

Once you found the path right click on General and them click on new -> DWORD (32-bit) Value, set the register name as SuppressUppercaseConversion.

Change the value to 1 and we are done here. Close the Visual Studio 2012 and open it again.
