toolStrip1.Anchor = ((System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles)(((System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Top | System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Left)
            | System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Right)));
toolStrip1.AutoSize = false;
toolStrip1.CanOverflow = false;
toolStrip1.Cursor = System.Windows.Forms.Cursors.Cross;
toolStrip1.DefaultDropDownDirection = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripDropDownDirection.BelowRight;

toolStrip1.ImageScalingSize = new System.Drawing.Size(20, 20);
toolStrip1.LayoutStyle = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripLayoutStyle.HorizontalStackWithOverflow;
