Making external monitor the primary monitor in Linux

Making some monitor, a primary monitor is a matter of having the panels on that monitor. No one wants to work on one monitor that has panels of its machine on the other one. I have tried this on Red Hat Enterprise 6.
Here's a step-by-step way of moving a panel to another screen:
  • Right-click the panel you wish to move and select "Properties".
  • Uncheck the "Expand" option under the "General" tab.
  • Grab one of the edges of the panel by clicking on the left or right end (top or bottom end for vertical panels).
  • Drag the bar to the desired screen and position.
  • Check the "Expand" option in the "Panel Properties" window and click "Close".
