Hi John

You can copy and paste the .cs file in the Solution Explorer pane. The copy will be renamed and you can rename that to what you want.

However, if you in the Properties pane later rename the copy of form to the new name, I've found that the refactoring mechanics will rename references to your form not only in the .Designer.cs file (correct) but also in the original .Designer.cs file (really nasty)! What do others do?
