Real KVM software allows users to share mouse, keyboard, windows, clipboard, and file transfers with other computers. It also enables screen sharing and higher data transfer rates than other similar programs. Ideal for sharing resources with an old laptop or between different devices.
With Real KVM, your mouse cursor will move effortlessly from one computer to another, and keyboard input will follow the mouse's focus. Even clipboard data can be shared between computers with ease. Plus, a simple hotkey lets you move one window to the next screen, making multitasking a breeze.
To connect multiple computers, you'll need to assign a server role to one computer and a client role to the others. Then, specify which side of each computer you want to use, so you can smoothly move the mouse cursor between screens. The software ensures you don't accidentally move the cursor to the wrong screen by only allowing the center of the left and right borders to act as portals to the other screen. You can also choose how big this area is, and the inactive screen can be greyed out to make it obvious which computer you're working on.
Sharing the clipboard and transferring files is just as simple. When you move the mouse to the other computer, the software transfers the clipboard contents as well. You can also specify the maximum amount of clipboard data you want to transfer to avoid any accidental, lengthy transfers. If you've copied files or folders to the clipboard, a save dialog box will immediately pop up when you switch to the other computer, allowing you to select the destination folder.
In the Pro version of Real KVM, you can display a program window on the screen of another computer. To do this, you'll need to specify the hotkey for either moving it to the left or right screen. Then, simply press the hotkey while you have the specific window active, and it will appear on the other screen at the correct size and resolution.
Overall, Real KVM is an excellent software option for those looking to streamline their multitasking abilities across multiple computers. Its seamless mouse and keyboard sharing, simple hotkeys, and high data transfer rates make it a top choice for users who need to work across multiple screens at the same time.
Version 2.2.6: Compared to other KVM software, this program actually allows sharing of video: you can move windows to the screens of other computers and the data transfer rates are much higher (near optimum).
