Use external display in direct mode in UWP

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

    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:
