Force a game to load on secondary monitor

I was wondering if there is a way to force a game to load on my secondary monitor as my primary is a widescreen and some games just don't go to good on a widescreen. Any help would be appreciated

Yeah I know, but I thought there may be a command or something so that when I double click on the icon it will just load on the secondary monitor

You would have to switch your designation for primary and secondary in order to do what I think you are planning to do, like Lord said. Ultramon does allow you to move things from one window to the next (works best in XP) but it requires items to be windowed.

Consider that you do have a lot higher overhead when your second display is active and your frame-rates plummet. Additionally you will have a lot of your desktop icons repositioned sometimes.

Yeah I know I tried that and it was messy, lol, I'm using Vista at the moment and the one good thing is that it automatically puts the black bars etc on the edge of games so I can play anything on widescreen but XP doesn't do that so that's why I was trying to come up with my original idea so I can go back to XP
