Changing the Form Border
To change the border, select the ''FormBorderStyle'' in the ''Properties'' panel of the form you which to modify. Click on the down arrow in the value field to drop down a menu of items and select the setting of your choice. Feel free to experiment with the different settings, using the F5 key to build and run your application to try out each setting.
== Stopping a Form from Appearing the Windows Taskbar ==
By default every form in an application is shown in the Windows desktop taskbar when it is created. Whilst this is acceptable for a small application consisting of one or two forms, it is unlikely that you would want every single form to appear in the taskbar.
To prevent a form from appearing the taskbar simply set the ''ShowInTaskbar'' to ''False''.
