I plugged my Unicomp mechanical keyboard into one of the front USB ports on my machine after bootup. When I checked in Device Manager, it showed two instances of said keyboard. Everything else only shows up once. Is it normal to get two keyboards in Device Manager in Win 10 when only one is plugged in?

Since the Device Manger shows that a battery is involved it appears that this is a laptop.  This being the case you are going to see two keyboards if you add an external keyboard.  The computer sees both the built in laptop keyboard and the external keyboard.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
