Hello, WR-L-ers,

Hereâs a great utility if youâve got two machines on your desk: http://www.keyboard-and-mouse-sharing.com/. Now even with a Mac and a PC, I can access both with the same mouse/keyboard.

I still switch between my Mac and Windows keyboard based on which machine Iâm primarily using at the moment (because the keyboards are of course optimized for their respective OS, such as the Windows key and the Apple Command key), but for my typical use of wanting to work with the email on my other machine or to copy/paste a bookmark or file, itâs a real time saver.

Iâd found a Chrome extension that could do the same thing (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/clipboard-sync/dapdfappilfdiljfpjcbkmkblldaemjg), but didnât want to expose my copy/paste text to Chrome, and it handles only text (not files).

Hereâs a good article with more options: http://www.ampercent.com/share-clipboard-between-computers-windows-mac-linux/10822/.

Just fyi,
-Monique
