Technically it would be a standard Windows feature, already built in: create two user accounts and use "Remote Desktop" to connect.

Unfortunately, the Windows 10 license does not allow more than 1 active user – while you can have multiple users logged in, the system will limit you to one user connected at a time. Connecting via Remote Desktop will lock out the console user and vice versa.

To have multiple connected users, you would need a Windows Server system and an apropriate number of Terminal Services user licenses (although 2 concurrent users are available by default).
