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 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.
