Desktop coordinates are based on the working area of the screen, which excludes the taskbar. You can use this method to set the position and size of your form on the desktop. Since desktop coordinates are based on the working area of the form, you can use this method to ensure that your form is completely visible on the desktop.

The following code example demonstrates using the SetDesktopBounds method. To run this example, paste the following code in a form that contains a button named Button2. Ensure all events are associated with their event handlers.
