    Change Main Monitor
    Good Day

    is there a way to make the second monitor (from the Display Port) the main monitor, and the laptop screen the secondary?

    I would like the tool bar to be on the external monitor.

    System Preferences - Displays

    Not at my Mac, but on one of the tabs, there is a small picture of the 2 screens - drag the white bar that's at the top of one to the other one. It's like moving the menu bar and this controls which is set as the primary display.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
