Use external display in direct mode in UWP

Hi,

I am looking for a solution on how to directly display an UWP-Window on an external display, without it being used in extended mode (e.g. as a monitor for the desktop). Pretty much every graphics solution offers some kind of direct mode, but I didn't really find an abstraction for that. Maybe DirectX?

Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards
Richard Braun

Hello,​

Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!

There is currently no direct API in UWP to do this, but I found some information that might be helpful to you:

You can try to create multiple views and switch them through ProjectionManager and ApplicationViewSwitcher to control the display of the application on different monitors.

Here are two useful examples:

Thanks.
