On your load event, change the position of the form to the screen area subtracting the width of the form.  Like:

Public Class Form1
    Protected Overrides Sub OnLoad(ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim scr = Screen.FromPoint(Me.Location)
        Me.Location = New Point(scr.WorkingArea.Right - Me.Width, scr.WorkingArea.Top)
        MyBase.OnLoad(e)
    End Sub
End Class

Open in new window

You can just set the location of the form to a new point which would be to the right.

Form.Location = New Point(x,y)

Open in new window

This sets the location to whatever x or y position you want.  Just use whatever variable you want for the x position to place it where it should be.

If you place it staggered under the form you want to stay on top, then use Form.BringToFront() to make that form active (on top).

If you want to open the form below the other, then you would get the location of the first form, then add the height of the form-- and set that as the location for the new one.

So,

Form2.Location = New Point(Form1.Location.X,Form1.Location.Y + Form1.Size.Height)

Open in new window
