You can ask windows how big the screen is, and then size your form accordingly.

For example - to start the application with the form filling the screen do this:

Form1 declarations section:

Private Const SM_CXSCREEN = 0
Private Const SM_CYSCREEN = 1
Private Declare Function GetSystemMetrics Lib "user32" (ByVal nIndex As Long) As Long


Private Sub Form_Load()

Dim lWidth As Long
Dim lHeight As Long

    lWidth = GetSystemMetrics(SM_CXSCREEN)
    lHeight = GetSystemMetrics(SM_CYSCREEN)
   
    Me.Move 0, 0, lWidth * Screen.TwipsPerPixelX, lHeight * Screen.TwipsPerPixelY

End Sub

What are the sizes that you want to resize your form to?

e.g. Always resize form to half of screen size in Form_load:

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Me.Height = Screen.Height/2
    Me.Width = Screen.Width/2
End Sub

'This always centers the form.
' Put this code in form_load event
Me.Left = (Screen.Width - Me.Width) / 2
Me.Top = (Screen.Height - Me.Height) / 2

leess's solution resizes your form's height and width and my solution above will center the form with the size size as design size.
