Connect single mouse to 2 Win 10 computers

I'm looking for a setup that will allow me to control two separate Windows 10 computers with a single mouse. This way I can move the mouse between the monitors connected to the different computers and whenever I click on something the click will be registered with the computer whose screen I am on.

What types of mice allow this to be done?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I do not think you can do this. I have done this erroneously with Bluetooth and it causes mass confusion in the two computers.
Put a mouse on each computer.

You can use a KVM switch that switches both keyboard and mouse. That might work. But for normal computers we give each one their own keyboard and mouse.

You can try Microsoft mouse without borders. You will need to connect both computers with Same LAN/WiFi and install "Microsoft mouse without borders" client on both computers. Once paired, you can freely use your Mouse/keyboard connected to one computer on 2nd computer.

You can find something called KVM, this one is perfect

You can control up to 4 separate computers using one mouse, keyboard and monitor.

Another option, not seamless but may work for you:

this mouse can switch between up to 3 computers by clicking a button. You need a receiver for each computer.
