Question: will it support windows 7 OS?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. According to the manufacturer, this switch is compatible with Windows 7.

Question: Are there 2 USB connections on this cable, 1 for keyboard and 1 for mouse. I cant tell from the picture.
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. I will assume the question here was directed for the KVM cables listed under the 'Accessories' tab for the ATEN CS1316. If true, the cables listed do only have one male USB Type A connector, as both Keyboard and Mouse are transmitted through it together. If you would like a recommendation or clarification based on your application, please feel free to contact your KVM Switches Online sales representative.
