This question already has an answer here:

I've just upgraded from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to 12.04, and the launcher is on the left side of my monitor. This is great, except I'm using a dual screen setup and my main monitor is the one of the right, so when I select my main monitor as the one where launcher resides in, it's residing in the middle of my extended desktop, causing problems when I try to mouse between screens.

How do I place the launcher on the right side?

Some of the operations in Ubuntu are by default. Hence, no one can change those. The placement of the launcher on the left side is by default. You cannot change it
