How to change Default Position for new Desktop Icons?
Hello, question is the topic title. Google couldnt help me.
Reason for the question: I have two monitors, and on my second monitor I have all my icons/shortcuts/folders. When I download or save a file to the desktop it automatically is on my primary monitor at the top left position. :/
I hope you can help me. Thanks!

previously with XP, if i switched the connectors on my monitors, then switched the primary and secondary monitors in the display set-up, all files sent to the desktop would go to the empty, secondary monitor's desktop. while i still had the start menu on the primary. it was very useful because of all the files that i change formats and then quickly send in emails without the need for long term storage.
it doesn't seem like this "trick" works in windows 7 however and my primary monitor is cluttered with files that are not very important, intermingled with files that are more permanent and more often used.
any way to set which "desktop", or monitor, the files saved to the desktop go?
this is how i would like my files to end up. i frame frequently used folders and files around my email. previously with XP the "saved to desktop" files would default to the display on the RIGHT.
this is an example of my desktop from a few days ago. i'm having alternate issues... you can see that my saved files are will-nilly interspersed with my go-to files and folders. i do not like this. it makes me rage.
anyone know how to make it so i don't rage?
