Get an HDMI switch, you can connect multiple devices at once and change the output with a button.

it is not recommended. a monitor is not a TV. it is designed to display 1 device. the only way you could do it semi-officially is if it has multiple input, then just use both and switch inputs on screen as needed. but this does not always work well on cheaper displays.

easiest is to use two inputs on the monitor of different type [HDMI and DisplayPort, for example] and then to use the monitors under right edge buttons to switch between the two while both machines are running. -- grampa

Buy a KVM switch. It enables you to share a keyboard mouse and monitor between two computers. You just flick a switch and it swaps them over. The absolute cheapest way is to swap the cable over when you want change computers but that could get inconvenient.

You should be able to use an HDMI splitter and then HDMI to monitor adaptors.
Without knowing your exact equipment, I posted two possible examples of the type of equipment you should be looking for.
Of course, you know you will only be able to use one computer at a time if you do this.
