Some apps do not save the window coordinates when they exit... so they do not open to the coordinates of the last window position. Maybe others know of a way to force an app to open to specific coordinates - all I know how to do is to automate the moving of the window to the location that you prefer via AutoIt3.

I use Display Fusion. It allows you to specify in which monitor each application opens when you start them, among many other cool features. Best multi-display tool I've found so far.
Hope this helps.
Cheers,
