C# -- MenuStrip (Reusing on Form2)

I created a new WindowsAPP, dropped a "MenuStrip" onto Form1, and changed it to have the buttons I needed.

How can I reuse this same "MenuStrip" on Form2, Form4, etc ?

Using the form designer click the menu strip copy it (ctrl-c). Then paste (ctrl-v) onto the other forms. Note that this only captures the UI though, the code is not transferred to the new form.

Doing a "copy/paste" requires me to "re-copy/paste" onto 50+ forms every time I make a change to the menuStrip.

Do you have a better way ?

If the behavior is always the same, then putting it into a User Control should work well. You just update the one control, and the changes are replicated when you rebuild the application. This control can be selected from your toolbox and added to all of your forms.
