Go to Start-->Control Panel-->Display, then click "Display Settings" on the left, and you will see settings for both displays including whichs hould be primary and secondary.

I don't have that screen.  Remember its Windows 7.

In control panel, there is 'Appearance and Personalization' , under that, there are 3 option Change Theme, Change Desktop and Adjust Screen resolution.  

If i type display 'display' on search i can access Change Display Setting but there is no option for primary / secondary

When you get to the control panel, in the top-right corner, change the view to "Large Icons", and you'll see all the individual settings

You missed a step -- once you are in "Display", you need to click "Display Settings" on the left

Click on the second display at the top to be able to change its settings, and a checkbox will appear under "multiple displays" that allows you to set it as your primary display

I don't know much about it, but since it's a program, not an actual toolbar, then you manually have to move it to the monitor. And it should remember which screen it was last set to, so the next time it launches, it should be on the monitor. However, you'll probably have to manualy move it every time up unplug/replug the monitor.
