    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.

    I had forgotten about this program since I was only using one PC for the last few years. I rebuilt old parts into a 2nd PC other day and had been using teamviewer to work on it . I remembered this today and boy am I glad I did. So nice to use and works perfectly still today. I was going to post a thread about this program and how great it is, but I thought I should use the search function and here is the post.

    This program is a must if you have a couple PC close to each other.

    I forgot about this program too, I'm going to give it another shot myself.

    Edit:
    Looks like they are still updating this program, It's now at 2.1.8.0105

    Very useful - has its own peculiarities but on the whole it works.

    But I wonder? Does one PC have to be designated as a master? Or can I use either mouse seamlessly. In other words, if both mice are connected to their "own" computers, can either of them control the other without a special setup option?

    I also wonder if the second one to be switched on can be logged into using the first keyboard. Or do both have to have their own active keyboards for that initial user/password input?
