Turn off screen when Your Phone is mirroring

When I connect "Your Phone" on Windows 10 to mirror my screen, the phone screen shows "Connected to windows" (or something like that, it says "Conexión a Windows" in Spanish).

 

Is there any way to completely turn off the screen? The reason is that on my Note 8 I had Android Auto burned-in to the screen after two years of daily using it, so I do not want this to happen to my shiny Note 10+.

I think the screen needs to be on. Did you turn the brightness all the way down to the lowest setting on your past devices? It should still be bright on the screen your mirroring to.

I did not in Android Auto, since I used my phone screen (my car does not connect to Android Auto). But you are right, in this case I can do it. Thanks!

@victoro I think you should create a new question, since this is not related to this question.

That being said, look for this icon in your quick settings:
