    Ive recently purchased a MacMini to use as a Media Center and all is going well. I have created giant shortcut buttons on the TV monitor so I don't need to turn on the Computer monitor when I went to open something that is for Media, however they keep opening up in the computer monitor. Is there any way to make sure that program's open in the secondary TV monitor as opposed to the primary Computer monitor?

    Thanks for the reply, but that wasn't what I was asking. I know how to move the menu bar, but I specifically want it on my computer monitor as opposed to my TV monitor so that I can use it when I'm sitting at my desk. What I was asking is if there was anyway to make sure that specific applications open in the TV monitor and not the computer monitor.

    Okay, that is the only way I know of, as moving the Menu Bar makes the monitor with the Menu Bar the primary display, thus applications get opened there.
