    When I was using Windows 7 I used Mouse without Borders, After updating to Windows 8 I forgot all about it Now that I am running Windows 10 I have found it again and it works great.

    What is Mouse without Borders
    Mouse without Borders is a product that makes you the captain of your computer fleet by allowing you to control up to four computers from a single mouse and keyboard. This means that with Mouse without Borders you can copy text or drag and drop files across computers.



    Supported Operating System
    Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista,
    Windows Server 2003 or Windows XP SP3. (32/64 bit).

    Download and run the installer on each of your machines. The Mouse without Borders setup experience will be launched after installation. Follow the instructions to configure Mouse without Borders. NOTE: The same version of Mouse without Borders must be run in the machines.

    On the computer you want to connect to click NO

    You can now close the settings window.

    Moving your mouse to the left side of your monitor will keep on going to your other computer. Another cool feature of Mouse without boarders is that you can use keyboard commands and shortcuts.

    Check that both computers are connected together and on the same subnet (IE: 192.168.0.x and 192.168.0.y)

    You can also try adding the other computers IP

    Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit and VM

    I am using Mouse Without Borders on 4 PC's linked together to 3 monitors with one mouse and keyboard and it works perfectly. The main machine is running Windows 10 1703 15063.332 and the others are running Windows 7 Ultimate. Works flawlessly. Version of Mouse without Borders is 2.16. 1027. I have been using the software for years with no problems.

    Worked great for a long time for me too. However, copy/paste only works in one direction now. the copy buffer is not being filled across the LAN from the other PC. The copy buffer on the local PC is correct, it's just not being sent to the other PC. In the other direction however, the copy buffer comes across. Some have suggested that's a problem due to antivirus. Both run MSE and I've tried with MSE off.
