Two Computers, One Mouse

If you’re running two computers on your desk, it’s frustrating switching between them quickly. Synergy can help you out by sharing the same keyboard and mouse between two different machines.

Here’s how to get set up running two computers from the same keyboard and mouse…

  1. Connect both computers to the same network
  2. Download Synergy
  3. Configure the desktop as server in Synergy
  4. Then set up the laptop in client mode
  5. Connect the client to the server

Done! You can now switch from server to development machine with the flick of a mouse.
