Calm down.
In the VB Menu, select Tools/Options.
From the Options screen, select the Project tab.
Select the Form you want from Startup Form list.

By the way, in answer to your second question.  This isn't the only way but if it works, it's good.
Usually you will just open a new screen without closing the old screen.
