TL;DR : I'm trying to find a way to share a USB-C connection with at least 2 sources, like a switch or a KVM. But I only found USB-A switches so far.
I'm struggling to find the appropriate hardware for my problem.
I have a triple display setup connected to my work laptop (and sometimes my own personnal computer) through a docking station (D6000 from DELL).
But I'd like to avoid unplugging and plugging back the docking station to avoid as much cable management as I can. So I tried adding a USB-3 switch (USB-A, this one), but it look like going through USB-A makes triple display non-functionnal (1 of my monitors doesn't work that way, confirmed by the manual).
So, I'm trying to find an equivalent, but full USB-C (Switching an USB-C stream through different sources, like pushing a button would change the selected USB-C source but to an USB-C output), yet so far I have found none. I have searched on several websites (Startech constructor website, amazon, several search engines...), but so far I failed to find one.
Any hardware recommendation that would meet my requirements ?
Desired setup :
