  2. Click the on the create Project button in start page .
  3. Select Visual Basic project in project type pane and select Windows Application in the Templates pane, Give the name of the project as you wish here for example the name of the project will be "Welcome" click on "OK" button. this will open an empty button.
    4.   Select a button control from toolbox which is already described in my previous post. 
          place it on the form and set the property as mentioned below:
