So I have gtx 950 2 GB and gtx 1060 6gb in my system and my 2 monitors are connected on gtx 950
The problem is all of the programs choose gtx 950 even games
I tried changing it in Control panel but it doesnt work
I also tried clean install of nvidia drivers that also didnt help
Windows and BIOS recognize both graphic cards and nothing seems to be wrong in Device Manager
Games that let me change GPU like far cry 5 i can switch between both of them with no problem but everything else its just using gtx 950
I also tried Windows 10 graphics settings but it just shows gtx 950
Can someone help me please

It doesn't work that way.

Connect your primary monitor to the 1060 and the 950 to the secondary monitor. Realistically if your just gaming on 1 monitor and content (web/Netflix/etc) on the other the 1060 could easily handle both tasks.
Ooh I see

I just wanted to make use of my old graphics card for something so it doesnt just collect dust in box

Well using it for the secondary monitor would be fine. Depending on the motherboard you may want to put the 1060 in the top PCIE slot and move the 950 to the lower one.
 
A GTX950 can be used as an aux physx processor in some games.
I would not bother.
Installed in your case it is generating heat.
A side monitor attached to your GTX1060 is not going to impact gaming.
It might fetch $60 if sold on ebay.
