I have two computers and one monitor. Is there an adapter where I can connect both computers to the monitor?
It's a PITA to disconnect and reconnect the monitor when switching between computers.

Regards

Jim

Most likely you will have to pick up another cable or two though. You'll need one for each computer going to the switch, and one going to the monitor from the switch.
