From this answer: How can I mirror one of the screens in a 3-monitor setup?p try using:

xrandr --output eDP-1-1 --output HDMI-1-2 --output HDMI-1-2 --same-as HDMI-1-1

In the accepted solution above, screen 3 is mirrored to screen 2 but the primary screen is not mirrored.


Another option is switching to Unity desktop: GNOME in Ubuntu 18.04 and multi monitor setup

Click the gear icon next to the Sign In button as shown below:

Note: Fresh 18.04 installs may need to install Unity Desktop. 16.04 Upgrades will likely have Unity in place by default. See: How can I make Ubuntu 18.04 / 18.10 desktop use Unity (be like Ubuntu 14.04)?
