Multi-screen Monitor Switch

    Hi Tech Support,

    I have 2 computers and 3 monitors. I want to be able switch the monitors between those 2 computers.

    Initially I thought that a 2-in and 3-out switch would work. However, I need my system (windows 10) to extend the monitors, not just duplicate them, so I think I would need to get a 6-in and 3-out type of switch. Do you think that is right? Do you sell a similar product? what is your suggestion?

    Yes, this is correct.

    Anyone of these tri-head KVM switches will accomplish your goal (unfortunately the smallest version supports 4 computers, not two).
    AdderView DDX30 is a robust and configurable switch which may be an overkill for your application.
    AdderView 4 PRO VGA MultiScreen, Triple-Head supports VGA video, while all others support DVI, at varying resolutions.

    Hope this helps!
