Resize a Form to the Working Area on the Desktop

The code below demonstrates how to resize a form to the working area on the desktop using GetScreenRect.

Private Sub frmFullScreen_Load _
   (ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
   Handles MyBase.Load
        Me.Location = My.Computer.Screen.WorkingArea.Location
        Me.Size = My.Computer.Screen.WorkingArea.Size
        'and maybe place an "exit" button to the bottom right 
        corner of the borderless form:
        'm_btnFullScreenExit.Location() = _
           Me.Size - m_btnFullScreenExit.Size - _
           New System.Drawing.Size(3, 3)
    End Sub
