Settings App not opening on Primary Monitor

Bug Description

After clean installation of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS I configured my second monitor and set it as my main monitor. When I change the monitor sides and change the primary monitor, the settings app is automatically moved to the laptop monitor (ie the current secondary monitor which was primary but is not now). Then every time I open the Settings app hereafter, it opens in the secondary monitor even if the pointer is on the primary.

This only happens to the settings app, and I think because that is the only one open at the time of assigning primary monitor

What was Expected:

When opening Settings app - it should open on the monitor where the pointer is at.

Thank You
