Hello Warriors:

You may have known this already.

But I just found out how to work on multiple computers from one keyboard.

If you have a home network and both computers are on the network.

It is very easy.

Some might use a KVM switch, but if you want to use dual monitors, you will have to pay over $200.

This solution is FREE.

I am not super technical. I just followed the directions and it worked.

Good luck.

    I have two computers going that I almost never shut off. Each has duel monitors. The 5th monitor I switch back and forth between the two. Most of the time its on #2 because its the one with the TV tuner and I have it variously tuned to MSNBC, CNN and CNBC. Head phones on one, speakers on the other. It took me ages to work out all the logistics but I finally set the gear up at a 90 degree angle so I only have to swivel my chair a quarter turn. The 5th monitor is up and at the center of the angle. My office helper says it looks like I'm flying a 747 or something but it really works well. One computer is 95% used just to monitor world equity markets, oil, gas, commodities and currencies. If anything requires my attention little chimes go off. I have different chimes assigned to different functions in the software like assigning ringtones on a cell phone. Meanwhile I can do my writing or anything else on #1.
    Everyone sets up according to their needs. I was a one man show around here for so long I got used to keeping all the plates spinning. I'm so glad I learned to work smarter and quit working so hard. I was in danger of major burnout.

    When you hear someone telling you what YOU can't do, they are usually talking about what THEY can't do.

    For anyone here that's on Mac, I found a great solution with


    It's super-simple to configure, allows virtually unlimited computers and monitors, copy/paste between them all, and even file transfers.

    Sometimes I'm running 2 desktops and 1 laptop, so it really comes in handy.
