Software pick of the month: Synergy

May 14, 2007 at 08:12 1 comment

More and more people have at least 2 PC’s on their desk. Some of them even have a whole stack of them under their desk. The result is inevitably a mess of keyboards, mice and screens.

Soon, you will start thinking about a switchbox to clean up the cable mess. Here’s where Synergy comes to the rescue.

Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display, without special hardware.

exampleRedirecting the mouse and keyboard is as simple as moving the mouse off the edge of your screen. Synergy also merges the clipboards of all the systems into one, allowing cut-and-paste between systems. Furthermore, it synchronizes screen savers so they all start and stop together and, if screen locking is enabled, only one screen requires a password to unlock them all.

    Wow, great if you have lots of screens hooked up to one another.
