Hi Experts.  I have a small form that I would like to have appear in roughly the bottom right hand corner of the screen.  As most screens will be different sizes, how do I determine the correct screen position.  Thanks in advance

Simple one. In the Load event of the form:
Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

    Me.Location = New Point(Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea.Width - Me.Width, Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea.Height - Me.Height)

End Sub

You might try something like:

Me.Left = System.Windows.Forms.Screen.WorkingArea.Width - Me.Width
Me.Top = System.Windows.Forms.Screen.WorkingArea.Height - Me.Height
