    I want something smooth and my Mac is main computer . I have a Logitech keyboard and mouse both wireless and use unifying receiver

    I have a spare unifier receiver which I can add to the Windows computer if required

    Can anyone Advise the best set up

    Share mouse actually worked fine for me but I didn't like the fact when I disconnected from wifi on the Windows the mouse keyboard would only be active on the Windows rather then the Mac

    i want the mac to be the main computer

    Thank you

    Hi there, Hope this helps.
    An app i've previously used for sharing my keyboard and mouse between my Mac and PC is 'Synergy'. In my opinion t's very fast, efficient and better than share mouse.
    Here's a link to if it you'd like to check it out; http://synergy-project.org.

    2nd this. Use it on a vertical four-screen set-up at work, unfortunately all running Windows 7.

    Four-screen set-up, nice!
    The most i've used Synergy on is to control both my MAC and PC (Windows 7) at the same time.
