  • This will give you a borderless form that completely covers the entire screen:

     

    Code Snippet

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, _

          ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _

          Handles MyBase.Load

     

          Me.FormBorderStyle = Windows.Forms.FormBorderStyle.None

          Me.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized

    End Sub

  • Microsoft has create XNA Studio for creating games for Windows and XBox, but unfortunately, it only runs under C# Express.

     

    However, it is still possible to create games using VB.Net and XNA, it just takes a little more work.  Check out the following site:
