Default Setting Size of Switchboard

How would I see these invisible buttons on the form? When I look at the form
in design view, there is only one button.

Gntlhnds -

My guess is the switchboard is too tall because of extra buttons on the form
that are not used (invisible). If so, you can decide to shrink these extra
buttons and/or overlap them and then reduce the form size itself (in design
view). Leaving them on the form gives you the ability to use them later if
you need more buttons on your switchboard later, without having to add back
the code to drive them.

If there is another reason, then post back what you think makes the form so
tall, and we can help from there.

I created a switchboard using the wizard, and I would like to permanently set
it's size. When it is set up with sizeable borders, it retains the last size
I make it. When I set up the borders as something else (i.e. thin, dialog,
or none), the width is the way I want it, but the heighth is not (it is way
to tall, shows too much white space at the bottom). How can I set the border
to thin and yet be able to set the size of the switchboard? Thanks for the
