Handling Multiple Displays with x2x
Two Displays, One Problem
My desk is the shape of a big L and my 17-inch monitor sits on a little elevated rack in the corner. The display works with a desktop that I use for hardware and software testing. With tons of desktop real estate, my HP laptop sits comfortably in front of the monitor. I like to watch news on my desktop screen (via a Hauppauge TV card) while computing on the laptop, so it's easy to just move my eyes up and down to see the two screens.
But, it's a huge pain to close the lid on the laptop every time I have to type something on the desktop keyboard or fish around for the desktop connected mouse.
I needed a way to operate the desktop using my laptop keyboard and mouse.
x2x turned out to be the solution and here's how it works.
