Three monitors - the two Lightroom windows are always changing

I am working on three monitors with lightroom Classic. I just changed my computer. I am working with windows 10. My problem is that the main window and the second window always are jumping from one monitor to the others. I want my EIZO for the preview only and a second fixed monitor to work on. How can I do that? Please can you help me?

I believe that the main window will always display on the main monitor. You can move it of course, but it will probably default back after a restart. You can define the monitor for the secondary window in the preferences.

Dear JohanElzenga,

thank you so much, it helped a lot. The only problem I have now is that as soon as I work on my 3. display (writing or watching a tutorial) the defined second window disappears again. Can you solve this problem as well?

That is as designed. Lightroom only displays the secondary window if it is in front. If you switch to another application, regardless of on which monitor that application runs, then Lightroom will hide the secondary window. There is nothing you can do about that.
