Dual Monitors - Force Program to Open on Primary Display


Hi, I'm running Windows 7 with dual Monitors -- is there a way to force a particular program to open on the primary display? For example, when I open Quicken it opens on the secondary display and I have to manually move it over to my main display in order for the info to display correctly.

I tried the add-on utility MurGeeMon but that didn't help. I am hoping there is a way to do this within Win7.

Many thanks,
Neal

Does this work:

Windows logo key + Shift+ Left Arrow or Right Arrow: Move a window from one monitor to another.
