How to position the Application Window in Normal State

When I have my VB.NET application maximised and then pres the upper right icon that brings it into the Normal mode (FormWindowState.Normal) it always posistion itself at a predefined posistion. The Width and Height is also predefined. Quite often these values are not desirable.

Where are these values stored? It must be possible to change them into something more appropriate during runtime or startup?

Is it possible to reuse these values next time the program is opend?

The size defaults to the size of the form at design-time.  If you want it to appear at a particular location then set the StartPosition() property to "Manual" and set a Location().

I personally recommend setting the form to Center Screen or Center Owner rather than manual as that is more in line with user expectation.

If you do want it to be Manual and want to persist the location between runs create a setting in your application settings file and bind (using the application settings property in the properties window) the location property to it.

If you want to be a bit more dynamic about it override the OnShown method of the form and before the overridden method (Base.Onshown(e)) implement your own code to position the form.
