It was announced at TechEd in Orlando that Visual Studio 2012 would come with an option to use the same colours as Visual Studio 2010. This is only partly good news as, frankly, some of us aren’t too keen on the VS 2010 default colours either. Let’s hope that VS 2012 supports the full range of colour tweaks available using the VS Color Theme Editor.
That just leaves the pesky uppercase menu labels to undo. Fortunately, there is a fix for that too. With luck, it should be possible to make VS 2012 look as though nothing has changed. At least it hasn’t got that pesky ’ribbon’ thing!
