With opengl I use wglMakeCurrent to just use the context I created in the main thread and it works fine. Can I do something similar with directx or would I need to have a deferred context even when I'm not using the context from different threads at the same time?

DirectX is not a state machine like OpenGL. Contexts can be used across threads freely. You only need to handle your own personal synchronization issues, which would be present no matter what API you use.

I went to my local Subway once to find some guy yelling at the staff. When someone finally came to take my order and asked, “May I help you?”, I replied, “Yeah, I’ll have one asshole to go.”
