Two monitors, one keyboard, one KVM switch
Posted on 2006-07-05
I would like to be able to retain information/screen on one monitor, while I use the KVM switch to transfer to the other system, in order to enter the information/screen displayed on the other monitor.
Question is; How can I do this? I have gone to CompUSA and looked at adding another KVM switch, but they do not have any "device" that will work for a setup of; two monitors, one keyboard connected to one KVM switch. They suggested that I could use two video cards, but I do not believe that would work.
I hope I have made myself clear. The way I am handling it now, is that I copy the information on one screen to a file, then place that file in a "shared folder" between networks. On the other network I bring up the file and enter the information onto that system. So I would like to maintain the information on one screen, switch to the other network, use the other monitor to enter the information.
With the KVM switch that I now have; I could hook it up whereby I could have two monitors, but then I need two keyboards. I DO NOT want to have two keyboards.
