Minor screen noob issue

Hey guys, kinda new to MAC. Have been using my MBA with an external Dell in clamshell mode with success, but if i want to go dual screen how do i make the external display as the MAIN screen?
When i go to Preferences -> Displays -> Arrangement, i can only choose if i want MBA screen on left or right side.
What i want: External 24" display as Main screen ( With Dockstation etc ), MBA on Right side.

If it matters, OSX 10.8.2, MBA 13" mid 2012 i7 8 256

You can click and drag the menu bar inside those settings to move to the other display.
