In VB.NET:

Focus a particular cell:

Me.DataGridView1.Rows(0).Cells(0).Selected = true
Me.DataGridView1.SelectionMode = DataGridViewSelectionMode.CellSelect

Focus a particular column:
      Me.DataGridView1.SelectionMode = DataGridViewSelectionMode.FullColumnSelect
      Me.DataGridView1.Columns(1).Selected = True

Note: When using FullColumnSelect mode, it doesn't allow SortMode of any one column to be set to Automatic

Focus a particular row:
     Me.DataGridView1.SelectionMode = DataGridViewSelectionMode.FullRowSelect
     Me.DataGridView1.Rows(1).Selected = True
