better way to organize VB .NET project

Hai Guys,

I am newbie to VB .NET. I have a big project and it has many windows forms. I want to better organize these forms (something like inside folders as in ASP .NET or by any other way). Too much forms in one place makes harder to find related forms.

    In my latest project I broke it up into modules.  The program lent itself to modularization ( is that a word? ) so I created a folder for each module and put all items related to that module in that folder ie... winforms, crystal reports, modules etc...  I also use a class structure for interaction with the database so I create a seperate Class Library project, in the same solution, for those.  It cleaned my project up pretty nice.

    You can organize the project in the solution explorer using Folders.  Right-click on a project in the Solution Explorer, and select Add folder.
