Each form has system menu. It occurs at click mouse on icon in the left upper corner of the form.
Its units:
- Restore
- Move
- Size
- Minimize
- Maximize
- (separator)
- Close
In an example the first 5 menu items are deleted.

Example:
-------------------------------Module1 -------------------------------------------
Declare Function GetSystemMenu Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal bRevert As Long) As Long
Declare Function GetMenuItemCount Lib "user32" (ByVal hMenu As Long) As Long
Declare Function RemoveMenu Lib "user32" (ByVal hMenu As Long, ByVal nPosition As Long, _
    ByVal wFlags As Long) As Long
Declare Function DrawMenuBar Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long
Const MF_BYPOSITION = &H400&
Const MF_REMOVE = &H1000&

Public Sub DisableMaxMin(ByVal Form_hWnd As Long)
    Dim hMenu As Long
    Dim nCount As Long
    Dim i as Long

    hMenu = Module1.GetSystemMenu(Form_hWnd, 0)
    nCount = Module1.GetMenuItemCount(hMenu)
    For i=1 To 5
        Module1.RemoveMenu hMenu, 1, Module1.MF_REMOVE Or Module1.MF_BYPOSITION
    Next i
    Module1.DrawMenuBar Form_hWnd
End Sub

Sub main()
    MDIForm1.Show
End Sub
------------------------------- end Module1 ------------------------------------

------------------------------- MDIForm1 ----------------------------------------
Private Sub MDIForm_Load()
     Module1.DisableMaxMin Me.hwnd
End Sub
------------------------------- end MDIForm1-----------------------------------
