Mac switcher tip – SynergyKM

Synergy - mac/pc

Today I have another tip for people switching to a new Mac. Synergy is an open-source application that will let you share your keyboard and mouse across multiple systems. I’ve had pretty good luck with it in the past, so I thought I’d give it a try on the Mac. After a little Google searching, I found an OS X front-end for Synergy called SynergyKM that adds an option in the system preferences to manage it.

As you can see in the picture above, I have the iMac with a second monitor, and a third monitor for my old Windows PC. When I move the mouse across the screens it automatically switches to whichever computer controls that screen.
