    I just figured out what I did wrong on this. I manage to make it work by checking if the display was already activated before activate it. You see I have this script that active display like on the example in the manual ( if (Display.displays.Length > 1) Display.displays[1].Activate(); ) but I have this script in all my scene so after I loaded the new scene it active again and it was this that cause the bug.

    So I make a static bool that register if the display was activated or not before activate it... So it's not really a bug, but having it to check by itself when we call the Activate() function to not calling it if it was already activate would be cool.

    I'm facing exactly the same issue, it would be nice to hear if you managed to solve that.
    As well I think Display.Deactivate will be very usefull.

    And one extra note: Loading another scene in the Editor and switching the Displays in the Game View it works fine. This issue appears only in the build version. (Using Windows 10)

    Same issue appears in 5.4.0b22. I also try some workarounds
    - calling Display.SetParams or Display.SetRenderingResolution (to "reactivate the display)"
    - mark the display cameras as as undestroyable by calling DontDestroyOnLoad and move it to the new scene with SceneManager.MoveGameObjectToScene
    but without success.

    By the way: next to the Display.Activate method a Deactivate method would be nice :)
