Question Outputting Desktop PC and Laptop both using Extended/Dual-screen mode to same set of 2 monitors

I'm running both systems as extended across 2 monitors but I'm needing to use the same 2 monitors for both systems. Right now I'm using a 1:5 HDMI switcher but it's very dumb and doesn't do everything I'm trying to accomplish. I can change between inputs on one monitor only. I need to be able to switch between the two with a quick press of a button (like I currently kind of can do with my switcher).

Do I need 2 splitters to attach to my existing switcher? Or an entirely different solution? Would the splitters output extended display or only duplicate displays? As mentioned before duplicate displays would not be what I'm looking for.

Thank you.
