It would be great to be able to move the individual control panels (TX, CW, EQ, etc.) and lock them in a different location or different screen. However that is not presently possible, but you can move the whole control panel from the right side to the left side of the screen.
Position your cursor on the upper bar of the control panel (next to "EQ") and then hold and drag the panel almost to the left side (not all the way), release the mouse button and the panel will attach itself to the left side. Repeat the steps to return the panel to the right side. Its a little touchy because the panel wants to return to the right, but it does work.
Who needs this? I don't know. But a left hand person may feel right at home, also with two (or more) monitors, if the radio display is on a monitor to the right side of the operator having the control panel on the left side would make it more visible and centered in front of operator. Most people also look at a display screen from left to right so it becomes the first thing you see.
Food for thought.

I would like to be able to move to bottom or top of screen. This would be great since most computer monitors aspect ratio is wide screen.

Hi Al,
Here is an idea that also addresses moving and docking the various panels to another monitor.  It has 51 votes so far.  (it's one of the most wanted ideas).   Check it out and add your comments and your vote if you agree.
