Question: How do you connect this switch to a laptop?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. You would simply connect the VGA, and PS/2 mouse and keyboard cables to the switch and the laptop. If the laptop is newer, without PS/2 ports, you may be able to use PS/2 to USB adapters for the keyboard and mouse. However, we are not certain that PS/2 to USB adapters will provide acceptable performance or even work at all.

Additionally, we have uploaded the appropriate SwitchView manual for your convenience.
