Lock Touchscreen Keyboard (Windows 10) To Main Monitor

I am using a dual monitor system, with monitor number 1 as a touch screen. I want to find a way such that touching the "touch keyboard" button on the task bar will only make the keyboard appear on monitor 1. Right now, if a window is in focus on the second monitor, touching the "touch keyboard" button will open the keyboard on the second screen, which i then have to undock and drag back to the first to actually use.

There isn't a way to do that in DisplayFusion, but while testing it out, I ended up making the Touch Keyboard stay on the Primary monitor some how. After I opened it on the Primary monitor, I just moved it slightly, then closed it. Now it seems to always open there, regardless of which monitor the focused application is on.

Hello, was this work-around done using the touchkeyboard located on the taskbar, or the on-screen keyboard desktop application?

The touchscreen keyboard using the icon on the taskbar (next to the system tray icons).

@David: Did my workaround from post #2 not work to keep it there?
