Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
I have a dual monitor setup. I want to know how I can have icons on the right screen open the program to show up on that monitor and not the left one.
Try to set your right monitor as primary monitor in display properties.

Standard xp instructions here. Set right screen as primary.
Beyond that, controls depend to some extent on what graphics card you have installed.
You could try adding a quick launch icon to the toolbar on the second monitor, and see if that works in xp. If that doesn't work, you may have to open them from a command line and specify which monitor to use.
A simple way to do so is to get a copy of Ultramon. See here. You can download a 30 day trial and check it out.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
