I know the start screen can be moved using Win-PageUp or Win-PageDown, but is there any way to save this value permanently?

I've read similar questions:

The anwser is always "open or move it to the screen you want". On my pc the position is only saved for this session, after I logout and sing in again the start-screen is always on my main monitor.

I tried reinstalling but the problem persists. Am I doing something wrong or has noone else this problem?

Can you make the other one your main monitor? – Karan Dec 21 '12 at 18:50

There is a tool called Windows 8 Start Menu Modifier which allows you to set the startscreen on Display 2. Change the option "Screen".
