Keyboard/Mouse Product question

    I need a KVM switch that is not used for a monitor. I have 2 computers and 2 monitors. I just need to share a keyboard and mouse. Switch must be made using hotkey (no button).

    I cannot connect as monitor plug and just 'not use it'.

    Thank you,

    Hello Doug,

    Thank you for reaching out on our HelpCenter.

    It looks like you need a KM (keyboard/mouse) switch with hot-key switching support. Unfortunately these are only available supporting 4 or more computers.

    Alternatively you can go with a 2-port KVM switch without using its video port. Use KVMGFilter to further narrow-down your search by selecting your keyboard/mouse interface (USB or PS/2).

    Hope this helps!
