Hi!

Put everything inside MDI parent form, that would take care of the scrolling automatycly and there are minimal changes.

Regards!

You need to decide what your minimum resolution will be for the application and design it with that in mind.
If you want it to be used on netbooks with a low resolution - go back and re-design the layout of the forms for that resolution.
Good use of the Anchor points on each control will also make sure they re-size nicely when viewed on larger screens too, but always design for your lowest resolution.

NetBook often have 1024 * 600 display. You need to ensure that your forms can fit this size.
