Windows 7: using remote desktop on a laptop to connect to dual monitor desktop

using remote desktop on a laptop to connect to dual monitor desktop

I have a laptop I want to use to connect to my desktop PC. The problem I am having is the desktop is running dual monitors and has icons on the second monitor. When I use remote desktop on the laptop I can connect to the desktop PC fine but all the icons that were on the second monitor move over to the primary monitor. This is fine as it lets me use those icons on the single monitor laptop but when I sign back onto my desktop all of the icons are still moved over to the primary monitor and I would prefer they stay on the second monitor.

Is there a way to still see those icons when I am connecting with the laptop but not have them permanantly move to the single monitor?

Thanks!
