Set the BorderStyle property to "1 - Fixed Single" then set the MinButton Property to "True" (in that order).

Set your forms BorderStyle to 0-None. Add a label to the top of your form and set BackColor to a different color then the form. Add buttons or labels to depict 'close' or 'minimize' or w/e you want and add code to them.
