And here is the answer:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Form_Load()
    KeyPreview = True
End Sub

Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
    Select Case KeyCode
        Case vbKeyLeft: MsgBox "Left"
        Case vbKeyRight: MsgBox "Right"
        Case vbKeyUp: MsgBox "up"
        Case vbKeyDown: MsgBox "Down"
    End Select
End Sub

One more:

if you add a label  here is a code :

'*======start============

Option Explicit

Private Sub Form_Load()
    KeyPreview = True
End Sub

Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
    Select Case KeyCode
        Case vbKeyLeft: Label1.Caption = "Left"
        Case vbKeyRight: Label1.Caption = "Right"
        Case vbKeyUp: Label1.Caption = "up"
        Case vbKeyDown: Label1.Caption = "Down"
    End Select
End Sub

'*========== end ==========
