Why would you want two different instances of W10 though? So if I understand correct, you have 4 screens in total; w10 has built in software how to split the screens; I know nvidia cards have that software too; not sure about and.

Settings -> display ->monitor -> multiple displays // to find it in W10 and in nvidia software it’s under on of the left columns (Note: not talking about the nvidia GeForce now experience software, but rather the more outdated look one)

I know how to setup the split screen, But i want to use different mouse/keyboard and when i open an application i want it to be on the screen in front of me, not one random screen:P

Any more ideas?

You want to run 2(+) sessions, each with their respective input/output?

So if you hit Win+P you can split the screens instead of mirroring. The mouse kb is assigned to all of those screens but can of course be locked by an application that is in focus. I do not know of a way to customize the new window behaviour in windows but that does not mean it is not possible.

I am not aware of any way of splitting input-devices like that under Windows. The only way I can come up with is running two virtual-machines, each with their own input-devices.

Linux. Or look into tools like Aster when Windows is a must.

But gaming on Linux is not comparable to windows. He does want to game

default, windows will open windows . . . on the primary monitor. 

If you set the monitor your want stuff to appear on as primary, it will solve a bit of your problems. (unless the application you are opening is already open on another screen, than it won't work).

 

If you want to split your screens and input devices, why not simply use a 2nd computer?

You need to use a separate computer, or run virtual machines like in this video:

That is the only way to have multiple mice and keyboards.

Yes, but I didn't check the comments here an hour ago.

You're right. I focused on answers like "it's not possible". :) I clicked "agree" then.
