Lightroom Classic: Confused by twin monitors

The latest Classic is having issues with working across two monitors. My system actually has three screens but the second and third are mirrored. I setup LR Preferences and it showed two screens and I selected the second screen as the secondary window.

However every time I boot LR it shows the secondary window only and on my main screen!

I have to double click the LR desktop shortcut to force it to sort itself out. Checking the preference display tab the selected secondary screen has switch to my primary screen!

PS is fine with this setup by the way.

I should add that I have two GPU cards. A Radeon RX 570 running two screens and an old Geforce 520 for the third. The Radeon displays are managed by Windows and it is Windows that arranges the order of displays not any other software. I find this works well in all circumstance except that mentioned.

After discussion with the team, I don't believe this mirroring on the 2nd and 3rd is currently supported. We are working to verify this. If so, this would fall into a feature request.

Interesting, thanks. Well it sort of works but often gets confused and is quickly corrected so not a major issue but I'm glad to request it as a new feature as more of us use multi monitors nowadays.
