Move what?! :-)
What do you mean by "building" a form?
What do you mean by "returning" to a form?

i mean by building this code:
form f=new form();

If you mean construction, call it construction (and that won't compile; remember that C# is case-sensitive).
Anyway, see my answer. Is it what you need?

Please see my comment to the question: apparently, the question is not correctly formulated. But most likely, you are looking for this:

Want an advice? Avoid using more then one form in your application. Make one form and change it content by having different panels with different controls; you would need to show and hide panels depending on the state. Another good option is to use, instead of multiple forms, different tab pages using System.Windows.Forms.TabControl.
