Is there a way to force ALL programs, Apps and pop-ups to open on the #2 monitor, instead of sometimes opening on the #1 monitor?

The main monitor will be the one where it all opens. If you drag it over to screen#2 and close it there, next time it will open on #2, as this will be remembered. Without using 3rd party software, there is no way to prevent this.
