[SOLVED] Game starts on Second Monitor

Some technical details: I'm on Windows 10. My second monitor is 1920x1080, and my main monitor is 2560x1440. I'm launching the game from a folder inside my Documents folder (not Program Files).

Every time I launch Catlateral Damage, it will open on my second monitor. I can move it to my main monitor using [Win]+[Shift]+[Arrow Key], but if I try to up the resolution to 2560x1440, it will pop back over to my secondary monitor (this also happens on a resolution change downwards).

For now I've just been playing in 1920x1080 with the game attached to the top-left corner of my screen, but I'd really like to play in fullscreen on my big screen. Does anyone have any tips/workarounds? Is there maybe a setting I have to toggle that I missed?

Edit: The solution is to switch to windowed mode, move the game while it's in a window, then switch back to fullscreen. After that the game will stick with the monitor it's on.

I was trying to find the answer myself and just about gave up when I accidentally stumbled upon a fix. What I did was I unchecked the "Fullscreen" option, then dragged the window over to my main monitor, then went back to the main menu without saving the settings. Since I didn't save the windowed setting, it then went fullscreen on my main monitor and I was able to go back to the options and change the resolution to fit my main monitor.

Hope this fix works for you as well!

This worked perfectly! Thanks for the help.
