Thanks for replying.  But unfortunately that doesn't help.  Now the 
application is full screen but (and I don't think I may have made this 
clear before) what I still see is only the top left hand portion of the 
intended form ie the portion that is visible at design time.  Still 
puzzled as to what to do next.
