Is it possible to find Vth (Thevenin's voltage) using Multisim?

Yes, if you build the circuit and simulate it.

Here is original circuit:

My job is to determine the voltage seen by R5. I removed that resistor and connected Voltmeter instead of it, picture bellow.

Is it correct?

By the way, I calculated by hand that Vth should be 2V, but Multisim says that it is 4V, as you can see.

Is R6 the load or part of the Thevenin circuit?

If its the load then you remove it and measure the voltage as you've shown.

If its part of the circuit then you leave it in and measure the voltage across it.
