Arrow Using My Mac Mouse & Keyboard on My PC

I've just conected my new PowerMac G5 and PC up to a switch box so I could use the both on one moniter. It said I could use one mouse and keyboard for both but I couldn't get that t work.

I've just worked out how to connect up the Mac keyboard and mouse to the switch box so that it works on both computers.

I'm finding the mouse works a bit strange on the PC. It jumps a bit and also I've only got the one button.

I was wondering about the keyboard. Will the Mac keyboard work on the PC okay? I'm not sure where the Windows button is on the Mac?

If its an official Apple KB, why on earth would it have a Windows key on it?

I use to use a apple pro kb on my pc, just installed applekeys to get some keys to work. The apple key works as the windows key.

I use AppleK Pro...


All keys work perfectly, volume, eject, all F keys etc even shutdown. I have left command key set as control so no more confusion between work and home as all shortcuts are then the same, right command key acts as Windows key although I never use it.

Jeez Psycho,
I'm an apple fan boy and the first thing I did was get a Logitech MX510. Those xtra buttons come in handy no matter what operating system.

You have to be the only person in the world to be using an apple mouse on a PC!!! Do yourself a favour and get a decent mouse

I'm not Mac bashing or having a go Psycho, but the whole one button mouse thing is just Apple being stubborn IMO. The Apple PRO kb is the best kb I have ever used tho (good choice on that one).
