Something like below, modifying the X and Y coordinates to suit.

Wayne
Dim frm As New Form2
With frm
    .StartPosition = FormStartPosition.Manual
    .Location = New Point(x:=100, y:=100)
    .Show()
End With

Open in new window

before you show the form with Show() or ShowDialog(), change the Location property of the form.
