Unable to use second display as primary Illustrator Frameless Application display on Mac

I can't for the life of me figure out how to assign Illustrator to my second display; I prefer to operate in a frameless setting.

Currently have I Premier running on the left Main Display with the Mac's Dock on the left, and Illustrator running preferably on the Right Extended Display, however no matter what I click or when I to 'assign' Illustrator to that display, Illustrator will not populate the top taskbar to that display. These are matched Studio Displays.

I'd prefer to not follow this outdated advice, as it's not a solution and ignore's Mac's fundamental advantages of it's OS.
