Screens Moving at random.

I have a 3 monitor set up on an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3gb card, two monitors running DVI from Dispaly Ports and one running DVI direct, I've been using DisplayFusion for quite a while now with no problems but recently, after the latest updates my screens keep swapping round if I say have to go take a call or make a coffee.

I usually have email open on one screen, web browsers etc on another and PHPStorm on the third, go away from the computer for 5 minutes and they have all swapped round?

I have disabled power options for the screens and any option like that I can find but it's still doing it? Any Ideas?

When you say they swap around are the windows on the monitors moving around, or are the monitors themselves changing IDs or moving around? Thanks!

Sorry, I thought I might have explained it a bit wrong, the monitor ID's don't move it's just what I have open at the time for instance

Monitor 1 - PHPStorm
Monitor 2 - Outlook
Monitor 3 - Firefox

Leave the PC for 10/15 mins and come back to

Monitor 1 - FireFox
Monitor 2 - Outlook/PHP/Storm
Monitor 3 - Nothing

Sometimes the Background pictures move too but that is not often

Does that Explain it better? never used to happen on older versions on the same hardware

Do you lock your computer when you step away? If so, Windows has an independent setting for screen sleep time on the lock screen, it's 1 minute by default. You can change it on the DisplayFusion Settings > Windows 10 tab

Hi, No I don't lock the computer unless I am going out, I work from home so it's on most of the time, I have just taken a 10 minute call and was sat staring at the screen, all the screens went black for 2/3 seconds and when they came back on all of the apps had switched around again?

It sounds like maybe one of the monitors is disconnected briefly and re-connecting. How are the monitors connected? (HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort, USB dock/adapter?)

Ok, thanks! I'm not really sure what could be happening there. If you exit DisplayFusion, does it still happen?
