    Ok I finally broke down and bought a KVM & A so I can use the same keyboard, mouse & speakers for both my Mac Mini and Windows 10 machine and it works great. I am currently using a Windows keyboard but want one that has the keys labeled with both Windows & macOS. And I don't want chicklet keys, I would prefer one with Cherry keys.

    Can anyone recommend me a keyboard with both Windows & macOS labeling?

    Most of the cherry based keyboard aren't labeled as both because you can just switch out your keycaps to your preferred OS... I know that doesn't work for switching in real-time via a KVM.

    If it were me I'd just get blank/colored key caps for the Windows/ALT and ALT/CMD keys on your keyboard of choice.

    I really like the CODE keyboard from WASDkeyboards, their keycaps should work on any cherry keyboard too.

    You can get blank keycaps in any color you like....

    You can also upload your own graphics and have custom keys printed for those keys..

    That Logitech keyboard has what I am looking for in that it has keys labeled for both Windows and OS X but it isn't a full sized keyboard with normal keys (I hate chicklet style keys).

    Any idea on a keyboard like I need?

    I was just using that one as an example. Logitech have 'Mac Editions' of their keyboards, such as this: http://support.logitech.com/en_us/product/dinovo-keyboard-mac-edition

    Just takes a bit of Googling.

    That is just Mac, missing Windows keys plus it is wireless which doesn't play well with KVMs. Is this so uncommon of a need?
