Thanks to its clean layout, you can easily access all the main functions effortlessly. It is possible to use another computer’s shared keyboard and mouse by just specifying the host name, or to share your own keyboard and mouse to grant access to remote machines.
Limit the device-sharing time and configure hotkeys
The application provides several configuration settings that make the entire process easier and faster. For example, you can establish a limited time during which screen toggling is permitted, as well as synchronize screensavers across all monitors.
Keyboard shorcuts are supported and they can be reassigned, so you can easily navigate on all screens with minimum effort. What's more, you can add an alternative port number and make the program run at every Windows startup until further notice.
Basically, it’s extremely easy to work with this tool, because it is able to redirect the mouse and the keyboard as soon as the cursor gets to the edge of the screen. Furthermore, you can select the corners of the desktop where the switching action should not be allowed.
To sum things up, Synergy is a pretty useful application that lets you share your mouse and keyboard between multiple computers. The program can be mastered by beginners and experts alike, and it is also light on your system resources. Thanks to the fact that it creates an icon in the system tray area at startup for quick access, it doesn't interrupt your regular activity on the computer either.
