How do I get the button to change the app to another monitor?

Ok, so.... recently I got a second monitor.

 

Example, how do I get the button to change the app that is on my main monitor to the second monitor?

I'm not sure what you mean. 

There is Windowskey+Arrow keys which will move the window you are working with accordingly.

 

However there is also winkey+p which will change what the second monitor does

Do you maybe know how I could make it so, example I'm playing CS:GO on my main monitor and I want to open chrome on the second one, How do i open chrome on second without it opening on my main monitor while playing?

Ultramon allows you to add a "move window" and a "maximize to desktop" (basically expand to cover both displays) button.

Not sure how the taskbar situation is on Win10, but on Win7 it also allows you to put a taskbar in the second display and automatically displays open windows etc in the correct taskbar (so not all of them are on the main display). 

 

Unfortunately it's not free.  I bought it shortly after Win7 came out and sure as hell got my money's worth.

oh LOL o_o no news for a switch by the next year?

 

can't say for sure, but try quitting chrome when it's at the second monitor. the next time you start chrome it should open a new window there (unless you have multiple chrome windows open when you quit, in which chrome will remember all their positions)

I think I found a solution, it's a glitch with CS:GO, i think
