How to Control Multiple Computers with Input Director

When you have multiple machines to manage, it’s easier to use one mouse and keyboard. However, not many of us have found a KVM hardware switch that really works for us. This is where software such as Input Director can come in handy, and Dylan is going to show you how it works.

With Input Director, you can share a single keyboard/mouse across a set of systems. You switch which system receives the input either by hotkey or by moving the cursor so that it transitions from one screen to the other (in a very similar fashion to a multi-monitor setup). 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.

Tell Input Director how your monitors are positioned simply by dragging them to the correct spot on the monitor grid. It’s that easy to get started!

Thanks, Dylan, for another excellent screencast.
