Hi. I am trying to move a window to the upper left corner of my screen. I seem to have no problem moving the window to the corner , but it becomes very very small no matter what I set as nWidth & nHeight. The window i am moving is a "no resizeable" window, and i simply want it in the corner and nothing else.

    Declare Function MoveWindow Lib "user32.dll" Alias _
                    "MoveWindow" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long, ByVal nWidth As Long, ByVal nHeight As Long, ByVal bRepaint As Long) As Long

try something like this...

Dim frm As New Form1
        frm.Location = New Point(Me.Left + 200, Me.Top + 100)
        frm.Show()

Not really, i want to move another window, Not the Form of my application. Is there some way of using this method with the hwnd ?
I thought this was useful
Declare Function MoveWindow Lib "user32.dll" Alias _
                    "MoveWindow" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long, ByVal nWidth As Long, ByVal nHeight As Long, ByVal bRepaint As Long) As Long
This one seem to work, but it becomes very small, and it can after then only be closed

Use SetWindowPos() with the SWP_NOSIZE flag:
    Private Const SWP_NOSIZE As Integer = &H1
 
    Private Declare Function SetWindowPos Lib "user32" Alias "SetWindowPos" (ByVal hwnd As IntPtr, ByVal hWndInsertAfter As Integer, ByVal x As Integer, ByVal y As Integer, ByVal cx As Integer, ByVal cy As Integer, ByVal wFlags As Integer) As Integer
    
    ...
        SetWindowPos(someWindowHandleHere, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, SWP_NOSIZE)

Open in new window
