Windows Forms Initial Size of Displayed Froms

(OP)
Is there a suggested maximize initial form size for forms in a windows form app?

I know it depends on the monitor the app is running on.

Don't want to make them too small to display my data or too big for most current displays.

I would think ideally you would leave it up to the user to resize as they see fit. So make sure at it's smallest you can still view it and the same when it is at the largest.

Thanks, I'm probably going to do that, but was wondering what the initial size should be before they change it.

I would assume my user has the largest monitor's display resolution (800x600 ?) and make sure my app would display OK to start with this setting.
