I use a Macbook Pro and a Windows Laptop each with its own dedicated monitor. I also have an Apple Magic Trackpad 2 that works great on both Mac and Windows 10. Does anyone know of a solution where the Magic Trackpad can be shared between the two computers without having to manually disconnect from one to move to the other? Essentially a KM switch that would work with the Magic Trackpad 2?

The software solutions sharemouse or synergy might work for this. It's not exactly a switch but it virtually connects the computers allowing you to move between the screens as if it was a multi monitor setup.

  • Neither of these solutions emulate the magic mouse functionality. They are 3rd party software that use the LAN network to broadcast packets which cause frequent collisions in my experience. I think a hardware solution is more secure. Thank you for your suggestion however.
