Duel/triple screen flickering when turing on/off a display

You Sounds like Windows thinks that monitor is no longer connected so going through that standard Stuff Windows does when it loses a screen.
Surprised it never happened with your 760.. does it all the time with my 1080ti when I am switching one display off or switching it to another input.

Seems like it’s turning off the extension.

Ok so this is pretty normal? Thanks for fast responces guy's google had nothing.

Somewhat. The RX 580 is pretty particular about the cables you use to connect it to the monitors. As a stopgap you can adjust the settings in Radeon Settings > Display > Specs > Override, but I'd recommend trying a different cable.

No one does really... There is no documentation, and asking AMD provides no useful information. Just play around with them and see if it fixes the problem. (it does quite often)
