How to manipulate windows Form

I have a nice simple question from a noob lol.

How can you manipulate multiple windows at the same time.

Ok let me break it down..for example you know how there are alot of programs out there and you go to a menu and click on  a sub-menu
and then the main form that was there changes completely to the sub-menu Form...when the user is done they can either go back to their main menu or
even play around with both the sub menu and the main menu at the same time.


So far I was practicing using an About US form which this is the code:

///////////


Private Sub MenuItem21_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MenuItem21.Click

        ShowAboutUSMenu()

    End Sub

    Public Sub ShowAboutUSMenu()

        Dim objAboutUSMEnu As New About_US
        objAboutUSMEnu.ShowDialog(Me)

    End Sub

/////////////////////

The point is I would like to know how to have a submenu form Open and at the same time still use the main menu and perhaps open multiple forms
without needing to close the first Sub-menu form in order to access another Sub-menu.
The way I have it now you can't do that unless you close the Sub-Menu Form and then access the Main Form

Don't use ShowDialog(), instead use Show():

    Dim objAboutUSMEnu As New About_US
    objAboutUSMEnu.Show()
