On Windows 7 I have set up Extended Display with additional monitor on the left.
Now the desktop icons appear on the monitor on the left.
Is there any way to keep them on the main screen which is on the right?

The right screen is already set as the main screen.  It has the taskbar etc.
Have got icons on right screen now by disabling Auto Arrange and just dragging them to the right screen.

Possibly you could look at Iconoid http://www.sillysot.com/

Note that Iconoid will treat both screens as one extra large screen.
