This software allows you to easily use multiple systems at once by connecting your desktop and laptop or repurposing an old device. It includes features such as keyboard and mouse sharing, clipboard sharing, fast file transfers, and smooth multitasking.
To use the program, you first need to assign a server role to one computer and a client role to the other. This is a one-time set-up process that will allow for the connection between the two computers. Once the connection is established, both computers function identically. The server computer displays one or more IP addresses, usually with the first one being the active Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection. Enter this address on the client computer and press connect. The server will display a confirmation box, and once you allow the connection, the client computer will be remembered on the server. You can also opt for the auto-connect feature, which makes the connection directly upon startup.
It is essential to specify which side of the screen is which to move the cursor smoothly between the two screens. The center of the left and right borders will act as a portal to the other screen to avoid accidentally moving the cursor where you don't want it to go. You can also adjust the size of this area. The inactive screen will appear greyed out, making it easy to identify which computer you are currently working on, and keyboard input will follow where the mouse is.
The program also allows for sharing the clipboard and transferring files between the two computers. When you move the mouse to the other computer, the clipboard content will transfer as well. To avoid accidental lengthy transfers, the maximum amount of clipboard data that can be transferred at a time is 15MB, though you can change this in the Pro version. Overall, this software is an excellent choice for anyone who works on multiple computers frequently.
