Problem with workspace on multiple monitors

Hi 

I'm used to working on two external monitors on my laptop and I'm setting up a workspace in Dreamweaver to use both external monitors and everything was fine.

I recently changed my laptop (and docking station). Suddenly, my workspace doesn't work anymore: I save my workspace using monitors 2 and 3 but when I open Dreamweaver again, all my windows (except one on monitor 2) are scattered across monitor 3.

My laptop is a Dell Vostro 5401 (with Nvidia graphic card) with an external USB c D6000 docking with two external monitors connected to the docking.

So to clarify, how many displays are actually connected now?   Is it 1 primary and 1 auxiliary or 1 primary and 2 auxiliary?

And how many video cards do you have?

I'm using two external monitors for Dreamweaver.

My Laptop has two different Graphic Cards: Intel Iris Plus and Nvidia Gefore MX330 bu I guess also the usb-c docking count as a third video card.

Anyway Monitor 2 and Monitor 3,  both external are connected to D6000 USB C Universal Dock.

I'm also using monitor 3 (external) as Primiary monitor in windows settings.

All driver are updated.

I also use monitors connected by Nvidia cards, from a DELL station. I noticed that Nvidia cards, at least their drivers, are becoming more and more in contradiction with the Windows OS (when dealing with multiple screens). I even dropped the Nvidia utilities to go directly to Windows. I noticed less problems, and a more accurate management of the layouts.

I read something about this but on my two desktops (home and office), both with Nvidia, I have no problem.
