I switch back a forth between PCs during development work.
I use a text file in a shared location to transfer bits and pieces of text, URLs, etc.
I'm looking for a better way.

After a quick search, this seems like a good utility ...

i guess you won't be regret with this, allowing you not only to switch between PCs at one site but also sites across the internet.

> I switch back a forth between PCs during development work.

So do I, and I used to do it primarily by physically switching monitors, keyboard, and mouse. But now I primarily use TeamViewer to do it (occasionally, but rarely, I'll need to do a physical switch, and in those cases I use the simple technique you mentioned — shared files, located on either one of the machines or on a NAS). A huge advantage of using TV is that it can share the clipboard, so anything I copy from one machine can be pasted to another (via the simple Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V). Also, TV allows connection to multiple computers simultaneously, all of which support its so-called Universal Clipboard.

That said, I'm a huge fan of NirSoft's utilities, and the one you mentioned looks interesting, but I've never used it. I have no doubts that it will work well — everything I've used from NirSoft does! Regards, Joe
