In, how can I open a new form as a child (so it doesn't start its own process) without it being bound within the borders of the parent form?

    The new Form will run in the same process, if you just don't want to see it in the windows taskbar, then set the ShowInTaskBar property to False in your child Form. Then call the Form.Show() or Form.ShowDialog() normally.
