    You mean remove the screen and connect it to an external display?

    Theoretically, it should.

    but to connect to external display you have to enable it, right? One of the 4 options for connect display like a projector or tv. And enabling that has to be done on the first screen which you can't remove

    If the cover has a projector shortcut key like my laptop's keyboard (F7) then one can do it blindly. :)

    Also if the main display isn't present, Windows might default to the external one!
