Hello,
You should be able to place any icons you want on your secondary monitor. Just select them and drag them where you want them. I often do, and just to make sure, I sometimes use programs to save the locations of these icons in case they revert when I change screen resolutions/profiles. DesktopOK is a simple freeware that saves locations, though I usually save icon profiles with Display Fusion.

that is not what i mean to say, sorry. i mean when i create a shortcut or install a game, the icon goes to the top right of my main, i want it instead to go to the secondary. i run rainmeter and the new shortcuts go under the skin i have on.

No, they will always go to the main.

It takes 1 second to drag it over

No I`m talking about the Windows Seven Forum skin, go to the bottom of the page and you can change the skin, try the Black wide screen skin.
