Its been a while sense I've used Visual Studio so bare with me.  What is the line of code that will load a new form when I click a button and run a check.  I would expect it to be Load.Form1.cs or something along those lines.  Thank you!

Here is what it would look like in your button.

The last two (this.hide and this.close) are optional and don't need to be done unless you want to, and you should pick one or the other (not use both as in the example below).  Also if you use Close on your main form it will stop your application completely, so all other forms will close.
        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            Form2 openForm = new Form2();
            openForm.Show();              // Opens the other form
           
            this.Hide();                // Hide the current form 
            this.Close();               // Closes the current form
        }
