If you use the same resolution, then I don't see how does it happens

I don't quite understand your question

Hi,
  See if this helpsOption Explicit

Private Declare Function SystemParametersInfo Lib "user32" Alias "SystemParametersInfoA" (ByVal uAction As Long, ByVal uParam As Long, ByRef lpvParam As Any, ByVal fuWinIni As Long) As Long
Private Const SPI_GETWORKAREA = 48
Private Type RECT
    Left As Long
    Top As Long
    Right As Long
    Bottom As Long
End Type
Private rc As RECT

Private Sub Form_Load()
SystemParametersInfo SPI_GETWORKAREA, vbNull, rc, 0
    Me.Move rc.Left * Screen.TwipsPerPixelX, rc.Top * _
            Screen.TwipsPerPixelY, rc.Right * _
            Screen.TwipsPerPixelX, rc.Bottom * _
            Screen.TwipsPerPixelY
End Sub


This is routine to be there in every form
