I have two monitors, one widescreen and one standard. I am playing an older game that doesn't support a widescreen, so I want to launch it on my standard monitor. My standard monitor isn't designated as my main monitor. Is there a way to tell the game to launch on my secondary monitor?

No, but if the game supports windowed mode you should be able to move it over to the other monitor and make it full screen again. It should expand on that monitor.

Some games do have config files you can edit that may offer some customizations, like which monitor to run on, do a bit of research on that for your game.

I tried making my other monitor the main and the game won't even launch. I'll try the config files option. Thanks.
