I have a setup at home where a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon (6th Gen) Windows 10 laptop is driving display to two external monitors. The primary monitor is connected via the HDMI port and the secondary via the VGA to DVI adapter. What I have seen is that when the Google Chrome browser has tabs open on the primary monitor and tabs open on the secondary monitor, sometimes the tabs on the primary monitor “go dead”. Even if I mouse over, they are inactive. Other applications on primary monitor are fine. I have seen it happen with Internet Explorer as well. In fact when that happens, if you launch Internet Explorer on the primary monitor or another instance of Chrome the top part of the browser is outside the visible top of he monitor. Only way to fix is logout and login again. I already have the latest DisplayLink Windows driver. Problem is becoming more frequent.
