I've been trying to find a way to get the start screen to start on my secondary monitor as default. I just cant find a way to make it work. I've googled and found the shortcut for doing it(windows key + pgup/pgdn) but nothing is happening when I try it.

The closet I have got is moving the start screen to secondary monitor with windows key+shift+left/right. But as soon as I have closed it goes back to starting on the primary monitor again.

I don't wan't to change my primary monitor. Does anyone know what to do?

Is it possible Microsoft has removed the windows key+pgup/pgdn shortcut? I can't find it here:

Do you have any third-party tool that modifies Windows 8 behavior such as a Start Menu tool? The keyboard shortcuts your using should change the monitor the Start Screen appears even through a reboot or the closure of the Start Screen itself – Ramhound Oct 17 '13 at 18:48
I don't use any third-party tools. – John Oct 17 '13 at 18:51
There's an answer at… -- you just want the opposite choice. – Debra Oct 17 '13 at 23:01
That doesn't work either. – John Oct 18 '13 at 11:52
