After experimenting with the Anchor property, I have most of the form looking alright after making changes. I don't think the Dock property is going to work for this project. It seems like the labels will need to be manipulated at runtime.

Here is a link to screenshots of the different DPI states:
Screenshots with different DPI settings applied

The top screenshot is how I want it to look across any of the default Windows DPI settings if that is possible.

This is how the Anchor property is configured for each of the controls.

Image upper left - Anchor = Top, Left
Title label upper right - Anchor = Top, Right
Enter Credentials label - Anchor = Top, Left
First Name label - Anchor = Top, Left
First Name textbox - Anchor = Top, Right
Last Name label - Anchor = Top, Left
Last Name textbox - Anchor = Top, Right
Username label - Anchor = Top, Left
Username textbox - Anchor = Top, Right
Abort button - Anchor = Bottom, Right
Backup button - Anchor = Bottom, Right

Any other suggestions as to how to make this work properly?

I'm thinking at this point that I should get the current DPI setting and if it's greater than 96 dpi then move the x-coordinate of the labels.
