I want to do some thing but I can't find anything about it. I remember that on Linux you can do a multisit workstation with one PC and several screens and perifericals (mouse, keyboard, etc), configuring X11 to serve different user sessions on different screens with only one PC.

I want to do the same or something similar on Windows 10. I need to have one user session on one screen and other user session on the other screen.

That's possible with Windows 10 Creators Update?

Maybe hardware is relevant:

  • Intel i7 6700HQ 3.4GHz / RAM 32 GB DDR4 2133 MHz
  • Intel HD Graphics 530
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060
  • 2 minidisplay port, 2 HDMI port, USB-C

Thank you.

  • There is third-party software that will do this, but it violates your license agreement.

No.

Windows client operating system does not support multiple interactive login at the same time, Terminal Server do.

The console session can't be splitted, it's a 1x1 relationship, terminal server or client operating system.

  • That's final sentence? Ok, so I don't want to install terminal server, impossible with windows. Thank you. Jul 4, 2017 at 16:23
  • @MarcosPérezGude A side note, depending on what the user do, I see more and more monitor with a builtin thinos/terminal that replace full computer. It could be a workaround

    Ok, however I assume that Windows is still not a multiuser operating system. Yes, you can have several users, but you can't play them at same time (example: the music on one session, when you change to other session it stops). This is something that linux have by default, more powerful system no doubt. Jul 5, 2017 at 23:31
