at work we need to show powerpoint presentations in our auditorium. so we have a laptop which is connected to a projector. it's windows 7 with office 2010. we extend the desktop so that the projector is the 2nd monitor. when we start the presentation it always wants to start on the primary screen. I can switch the primary monitor to the projector, however, we would prefer that the primary screen be the laptop, so the presentor can have things they need opened, and have the task bar to switch between thing they would need, and just have the presentation on the 2nd screen. So is there any way to have the presentation run on the second monitor?

Yes. On the Slide Show tab, you can choose which monitor to display on.

If you install the drivers for the Projector  it should see the projector as a second monitor. You may need to boot the laptop up while it is plugged in. Once that happens you can then use them like 2 monitors instead of extending them which then allows you to do what you want to do.
