You can set the Tab Order by editing the TabIndex property of each Control to indicate the order in which they should "tab".

You can also do this visually by selecting View >> Tab Order. This will show a number representing the TabIndex next to each control. Click each control in the order in which you want the user to traverse them, and VS should set the TabIndex accordingly.

There are also 3rd party tools that can make this much easier, like MZTools (http://www.mztools.com/). There are also extensions that can do this - click Tools > Extensions and Updates, and search for "tab order" to locate quite a few.
