Please explain what you mean by "change Windows Resolution my application loads into memory". Are you talking about the form size? What exactly are you trying to do?

If you talk about screen resolution (or system font size), you application should never modify that. User select the resolution that best fit his monitor and same for deciding if he uses large font or regular font.

Generally, WinForms applications handle sizing pretty well if you use standard and common controls.

first thing: Changing screen resolution should not be done by your application - only if there is no other solution. Normally your application should work with the already set resolution. C# has some good controls that help you achieving this.

A quick google search showed some good results for changing the resolution:
