Laptop with 2 Screens

Dear Experts,

I have a laptop and a desktop as pictured above.
I am using a screen to extend my laptop, so I have 2 screens.
Now I want to my desktop use same screen with my laptop so I can switch the screen whenever I want using VGA cable

Is there switch for that?

I believe extending the display already answers your question as you can move a window to wherever screen you want it to be viewed at.

I stand to be corrected,
Screen 1 can receive from both Desktop/Laptop

Its actually screen 1's options that will determine which output is displayed
It must be able to have its own "dual user" option, in some way using its own system menu, select VGA port1 or port2, thats your switch.
Pretty sure that if you have 2 ports it will be covered in its manual.
