Visual studio 2012 tweaks


In this article I will point out some not very great but somewhat useful tweaks comes up with Visual Studio 2012

Single Click Preview

One of the most annoying features I found after migrating from VS 2010 to VS 2012 is, Single Click Preview.
For me it’s quite frustrating, each time I accidently click and file in solution explorer, preview get shown.
Reason might be I was very used to VS 2010 environment, most people may like it. But I wanted to remove it and found the tweak for the same.
Go to Tools > options > Tabs and Windows

Where is design view in ASP.NET

I am an ASP.NET developer from quite long time and I pretty much enjoy writing aspx markup than using design view. But couple of days before I noticed, there is no design view anymore (which was there in visual studio 2005 and 2008, not sure about 2010). I am not interested in design view even now, but curiosity forced me to find the way to get it back. And I find the tweak  Go to Tools > options > HTML Designer

Multiple themes in Visual studio

(Frankly I like the default light theme, dark theme is indeed very dark)

Upper Case Menus

Do anybody notice all Menus in visual studio shown in capital letter.
Funny isn’t it, Add following registry key if you don’t like it.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\General DWORD: SuppressUppercaseConversion Value: 1
