How do I add hdmi tv as secondary monitor and vga monitor as primary m

Monitor is plugged in vga. Toshiba tv us plugged in hdmi. When I turn my computer on it thinks the tv is the vga monitor. If I unplug the tv and have just the monitor it recognises it but if I then plug in my TV. It then switches to that screen and won't return to the monitor even if I unplug my tv. It won't play sound through my tv or recognise it as one. I can't use windows and P as it does nothing. I want the monitor to be primary and tv as secondary with sound. Help me please
