Multi-screen Switching between PC's

    Good Afternoon,

    I'm currently trying to enable simple switching between PC's used for two different jobs. Components at play -

    Two monitors, both supporting VGA and HDMI.
    Mouse - USB
    Keyboard - USB
    Desktop w/ 1 HDMI & 1 VGA output, running the latest version of Fedora
    Windows 10 Surface, with USB 3.0

    At some point soon, I might be swapping the Windows 10 Surface with a MacBook, so the solution would need to be Mac-compatible.

    What do you recommend?

    Hello Robert,

    Thank you for reaching out. We need some additional information to fully understand your setup.

    1) Do you currently have your two monitors connected (one using HDMI; the other using VGA) to your desktop computer, creating an Extended Desktop that spans the two side-by-side screens?

    2) Does your Surface have any video connectors? If yes - what type?
    3) Do you currently have any monitor connected to your Surface? If yes - what type connectors are you using (both on the monitor and on Surface)?

    4) Will your MacBook computer have any video connectors? If yes - what type?

    Please advise.
