I have two monitors and I want to keep it soley on my second monitor. I can do this manually by opening the start menu from the secondary monitor and by default next time I open the start menu it will open on the second monitor.

Is there an option where I can force it to stay on the secondary display. If I restart or accidently open start from the primary monitor it changes the default start menu display monitor to my primary monitor.

Move your monitors around so that the secondary monitor is to the left of the primary.

All you have to do is use WIN + PAGE UP or WIN + PAGE DOWN to move the Start Screen, or Modern Apps for that matter, around. You haven't needed to physically move monitors since the early days of Windows XP.
