The Visual Studio 2012 default skin is just awful. To fix it, here are the shortcuts.

To use this nice dark theme, import this VSSettings file:

Run this powershell command to turn off the ALL CAPS menu (if in Visual Studio full version):

Set-ItemProperty -Path HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\General -Name SuppressUppercaseConversion -Type DWord -Value 1

(or if in Visual Studio Express Web):

Set-ItemProperty -Path HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\VWDExpress\11.0\General -Name SuppressUppercaseConversion -Type DWord -Value 1
