Connecting keyboard/mouse across multiple PCs

Recommended Posts

Looking for a recommendation for connecting one keyboard and one mouse amongst three Windows 10 PCs. I found USB switch boxes on Amazon.com that claim they're up to the task. Has anyone here have any experience with a particular product?
Thanks.

Thanks, Wayne.  I’m gonna try Input Director first, since it’s free.  If that doesn’t do what I need, I’ll check out Multiplicity.

I downloaded/installed Input Director this morning.  I spent a couple minutes configuring the master and slave PCs, and it all just worked!  WooHoo!  Thanks! :)
