I have to screens, and when ever I am trying to open effects/instruments on my second display Studio one freezes and I have to use end task, and than reopen again.
When I am using only one screen (instruments and effects on primary) and on second screen video file everything is good, no glitches, freezes or anything weird.
I have tried using two displays with same resolution, tried different GPU and the problem remains. When opening some instruments or effects on secondary monitor it keeps freezing. (I can only see outline of a window for that effect and no GUI)

My windows 10 is freshly installed (about two months), all drivers are up to date.
GPU: GT 730 2gb
All drives are SSD

Thank you so much!

I found what the problem was. For all who might have similar problem.
This is happening because of some VST's./effects are using openGL and for some reason, they are not supporting dual monitors or dual GPU's.
The solution i found is to have some sort of FPS limiter run before S1, I than limit my FPS to 60, and problem is solved.
Very strange thing i must say...
