I recently added a 3rd screen to my setup (a laptop and 2 external screen, one on

Or could it be a bug eventually?
You need to describe your situation a bit more to add your video card, driver in use,
and desktop.  The answer may be different depending on your environment.

Also, when you say "full screen" to you mean it opens fully in one of the 3 screens
or does the application open in a window that spans all screens?

oops, sorry I didn't think about that. So the video card is a Intel® HD Graphics 5500 (Broadwell GT2) on a Thinkpad X1 carbon using GNOME. Not sure which drivers are running or how to find out.
Then full screen is full screen on one screen only and actually on the screen with the top "menu" bar because that is very the apps open when launching from the side dock or elsewhere actually. Screen resoltion is 2560x1440 so there is enough space to open nautilus or thunderbird not fullscreen.

Anything else which could help?

Thank you.
