I am assuming you mean a windows forms application. A Form has a
property called StartPosition see:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...itiontopic.asp
for more information. Setting it to FormStartPositi on.Manual and then
setting the Location property to new Point(0, 0); should do the trick.

Hello

There can be a way to start it at Bottom Right Corner, but u can to perform
little calculation.

1. Get the Screen Resolution.
2. X = Subtract the Width from the X-Value of the Resolution
3. Y = Subtract the Height from the Y-Value of the Resolution
4. After getting the resulting values, assign it to the start position (X,Y)

is (800x600) or anything else

I would just set StartPosition to FormStartPositi on.Manual and Location
to (0,0) in the constructor/initialise event for the main form.
