Creating a form larger than the screen

I am developing a program which requires a fair amount of input using a .NET Form. The Form Design window will not let me create a form that is larger than the screen (780 pixels high). Is there a way to create a form that is larger than the screen (I will probably need 1200 pixels high)? Also, is there a way to specify the size of the window when the program first executes?

I have your problem before.

This due to your Monitor resolution.
you should increase your monitor resolution. at least 1280 x 1024.
then enlarge your windows form to fit your control.
unfortunatly if you decrease your monitor resolution to 800 x 600 , your form be small again but has no influence to your .exe file in debug folder. that is it work correctly until you build your solution again that create a new ( and bad) .exe file.

GOOD LUCK.

Thank you for your response. I was hoping there would be a cleaner way to deal with this. When the screen is at that high of a resolution, it is very difficult to read things. I've used many applications where the form is bigger than the screen and you just scroll it as you go. Let me keep the question open for another day or two to see if any other ideas are out there. Thanks again.
