Hi

You can use the following method:

public static void SetWindowPosition (
      int left,
      int top
)


this method can only be used in .NET 2 and above

sorry that was a mistake. That method is for setting ths position of a console window. To set the position of Window you can do:

this.Top = whatever;
this.Left = whatever;
