How can I share my 22 inch display with two devices?
Posted on 2014-11-26
I have a notebook and a desktop connected to a 22 inch HP display via VGA and DVI respectively. Only rarely do I have the need to use both at the same time and thus switch back and forth . . . as far as which one I want to see on my display. I have a small hardware device (USB) that allows me to switch back and forth very easily with my wireless keyboard and mouse. It's the switching of the actual graphics output that I'm having a problem with. HP included some software with the display that is supposed to make this happen . . . but it is very unreliable and clumsy to use. Does anyone have any recommendations as far as something that would work for me? I would prefer to find a software solution, i.e. something I can install on both my notebook and desktop and it just works. If nothing is available, however, I guess I'm open to a hardware solution as well. Thanks!
