The WinForms Notepad Project: Application Location and Size (Premium)


Fortunately, this won’t require much code as much of this behavior is built-in to Visual Studio and its application properties interface. To display this interface, right-click the project name in Solution Explorer and choose Properties. (Or, select Project > ProjectName Properties with the Visual Studio menu system.) When the Properties interface appears, select the Settings tab.

Then, select the field under Type and select “System.Drawing.Point” from the menu that appears. (You can leave the Scope set to its default, User.)
