  • Another way is to use extension from vs gallery:

    There even is an option to hide main menu completely!

  • Many thanks to provide this clever tip. I hope that the Visual Studio team will include ( in the settings ) a function doing it in an automatic way ( i don't like to modify the registry because i got problems after it and i had to reinstall my operating system ). I would prefer that the VS 11 Team puts the menu not in all capital as a default, but i am not sure that it will accept to recognize that its choice was an error

  • This needs to be an option in the settings which defaults to lowercase.  Anyone that wants the ugly capitals can tick the box. Fixed!

  • Thanks ! Should be the default when installed. Still the new UI usability is terrible, will stay with 2010 for as long as possible.
