control multiple PCs with one mouse and keyboard Mouse Without Borders enables you to control up to 4 networked computers with a single mouse and keyboard. Simply install the program on each computer you want to control, follow the setup instructions and you will be sharing your mouse and keyboard in no time. Mouse Without Borders also lets you drag and drop files between machines (very cool), share the clipboard and retrieve screen captures from the other desktops. To move control from one computer to the next, simply move your mouse beyond the boundaries of the monitor and the program will automatically switch control to the other PC. You can configure up to 4 computer screens side-by-side or in two rows. Other features include support for hotkey switching, screensaver control and remote locking. Compared to Synergy and Input Director, Mouse Without Borders is probably the most user friendly and easiest to use (especially for non-technical users), however Synergy and particularly Input Director offer much better configuration options for power users. While Mouse Without Borders lacks some of these advanced features, it is a lot easier to set up, which probably makes it the best choice for those who have never used mouse/keyboard sharing.

Replaces a kvm switch? well, not really 1 stars by raptozilla Oct 02, 2015 (Read all my 26 reviews)
This software claims to be a software replacement for a KVM switch, but that's not really the case. The K in KVM stands for KEYBOARD, the V stands for VIDEO,, and the M stands for MOUSE. Mouse Without Borders allows for the use of one keyboard and one mouse to be used with more than one computer, but it does not allow for one monitor to be used with more than one computer. Each computer that is controlled with this software must have it's own monitor, and the person controlling it must be able to see the monitor of the controlled computer or the software is useless. This software performs the K & M functions of a KVM switch, but it does not control the V function; for that to be true, they need to figure out how to switch a single monitor to the desktop of computers that are controlled by the software. I would not recommend it to replace a KVM switch if that's your intention for using this software because you're still going to need monitors for the computers you want to control. show Review details
Just downloaded... 5 stars by CPMacDonald Jun 26, 2012 (Read all my 7 reviews)
I've been working with many computers for years, this is the first time I've come across a tool such as this. I've used remote programs quite a lot, but this is one of the nicest Free tools at this caliber that's as impressive as this, that I've seen in a long time. I have 3 other computers that I use quite often and it's always a hassle switching from one mouse to the other and then not forgetting to switch back. It's installed and will be getting Many Hours of use in the nearlong future! Two Thumbs Up! show Review details
