After installing a new PC on my office desk I found it cumbersome to use multiple keyboard and mouse to handle both computer systems. Most of the times I used to fumble with wrong set of keyboard and mouse while looking at different monitor.
So I started to look for a solution to my problem. After couple of minutes of searching and reviewing different solution I settled for software called InputDirector. If you are running windows Operating system like me this is the best solution. The software is a freeware so it doesn’t cost you a penny.
Input Director gives you ability to control multiple Windows systems on same network using single set of Keyboard/mouse attached to one computer. The computer with which the keyboard mouse is attached is called Master system and second computer which receives input ( keyboard/mouse ) from master is called Slave Slave. You can switch between master and slave computer either by setting hotkey or by moving the cursor to the edge of the screen.
Input Director also supports a “shared” clipboard, in which you can copy data onto the clipboard on one system, transition across to another and paste.
