   private void MyForm_Layout(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.LayoutEventArgs e)
   {
      // Center the Form on the user's screen everytime it requires a Layout.
      this.SetBounds((Screen.GetBounds(this).Width/2) - (this.Width/2),
          (Screen.GetBounds(this).Height/2) - (this.Height/2),
