Project -> Options -> Forms ... and switch your desired form from the right to the left box

Remember when you do this that when you want to use the admin form you will have to create it first.

adminForm := TadminForm.Create(AOwner);

The first visible form in "Project - options - Forms" listed in the left box is the starting form which will be displayed on startup of your app.

Datamodules for example usually have to be first to make the data available on startup, but since a datamodule does not show, it can be the first in the list.

All forms in the left box will be created by default, those brought to the right box have to be created programmatically.
(For this it´s nice to copy the row from the appplication sourcecode where the form (dialog ...) is created, then paste it to the event (buttonclick ...).
then it can be shown and afterwards
