Here is something that i have quickly written up for you that should do that trick.
There are many ways to accomplish your task at hand.
Here is one way, You will need to change some parts for it, however you should be able to understand it :)

Public Class Form1
Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    Dim USER = Environment.UserName
    Dim Location As String = "C:\Users\" & USER & "\Desktop\textfile.txt"
    Dim File = System.IO.File.ReadAllLines(Location)
    Dim myFile() As String = File

    For Each item As String In myFile
        TextBox1.Text += item & vbNewLine
End Sub

End Class

If you have any problems, let me know and i will do my best to help you out :)
UPDATE: I have added the items to its own array before being sent to the textbox just to be safe.
