      Thanks to everyone who voted and commented on this issue. Visual Studio 2013 has added color in several broad reaching icon categories. We classified the icons we focused on into three sets: icons which represent common actions, icons which indicate code hierarchy, and icons that provide some kind of notification. By utilizing a systematic and broadly applicable approach to color use we are better able to effectively convey critical meaning or affiliation through color, to attract attention through color, and to improve scan-ability through color. This approach translates into color being applied to ~80% of standard toolbar and debug toolbar icons, ~75% of code hierarchy icons, and 100% of active notifications.

      Based upon the design goals outlined above and design decisions reflected in the existing scheme for each of the core icon sets we will continue to apply and extend our approach to icon colorization as we move forward. As…

      I agree with this, as a student I learn all icons what are , and in some near future I need to learn them again, no chance.
      And btw. , old one are much much better... this new one puts ridiculius eye strain !

        Theme in VS2010 was perfect, why you throw away something that was perfect. Dont force Metro interface where is not needed, this is so repellent.

              I’m going to mark this as completed. Even though the feature we ended up implementing didn’t do exactly as requested here.

              Instead we added exception filters to C# in the CTP of Visual Studio “14”. They provide an easy solution for this scenario, and addresses the core issue raised by many, namely what is the type of e.

              For this scenario you’d use it like this:

              try { … }
              catch(Exception e) if (e is RemoteException || e is NamingException || e is CreateException)
              {

              }

              You can find links to the CTP and more info about the upcoming C# language features at this CodePlex post:
              https://roslyn.codeplex.com/discussions/552378

              Thanks for the great ideas and discussion!

                Thank you everyone for voting and commenting on this issue.
                We are happy to share that we have made changes to the Menu Bar style in Visual Studio. In Visual Studio “14” CTP2 Menu Bar shows in Title Case and in Visual Studio 2013 Update 3 RC we have added a tools options control for you to pick Title Case styling or All Caps styling for the Menu Bar. Please refer to the following announcements for details –

                If you are using Visual Studio 2012, you can change the Menu Bar style using this regkey –

                  Updated Status: 7/2/2013

                  Thanks to everyone who voted and commented on this issue. Visual Studio 2013 has increased color and contrast use within the user interface while continuing to focus on giving the content you are creating and editing visual prominence. We’ve utilized the feedback you gave us to help refine our approach to color and contrast within three main areas: 1) we added color to icons and reduced line weights to improve icon scan-ability and to better communicate icon meaning and categorization; 2) we added line work and raised contrast levels to increase visual separation between screen regions; 3) we included a built-in “Blue” theme option at product first launch to better support user choice.

                  In keeping with these three areas we have made many changes to the Visual Studio 2013 built-in themes. In high utilization and icon intensive areas of the product, such as common toolbar actions and…
