2 computers to 1 monitors

Other Apple Chat

What will need to connect 2 computers to one monitor and do I determine which cables to use?
Thank you for helping this new computer user out.

You need a device called a KVM, for Keyboard Video and Mouse. This device wil let you connect one Keyboard, one Monitor and one Mouse to two separate computers. Nornally, it will have a shortcut that will let you switch between the computers, without having to switch the Keyboard and mouse. I used one more than ten years ago, and it was a perfect solution for an organized desk. I suppose they are still available.
