I am running VirtualBox on a dual-monitor Windows 7 x64 system. When I put a VM into full-screen mode it always appears full-screen on my primary monitor even though the VM window was on the secondary monitor. Is there a way to make it appear full-screen on the secondary monitor?

When you are in Full Screen mode in the view menu choose "Virtual Screen 1", "Use Host Screen 2"

While in fullscreen mode, press HostKey + Home to bring up the hidden menu. Select View -> "Virtual Screen 1" -> "Use Host Screen 2"

Priceless, thanks! – Tsvetomir Tsonev Jan 18 '13 at 8:35
Really late to comment, but is it possible to make 'Host Screen 2' the default one? – Chethan S. Jun 15 '15 at 11:12
@ChethanS. That's done in windows settings. – Tim Mar 16 at 23:00
