The GCS84B uses a tricky hot key command sequence. It use Alt + Ctrl+ Shift + the port number + Enter. Do not hold these keys down like you would for a Ctrl + Alt + Delete command. Quickly tap these keys using the keys on the same side of the keyboard. Meaning if you start with the left Alt key the also use the left Ctrl and left Shift. When selecting a port number use the number keys above the letters and not the number pad. Also this key sequence must be completed rather quickly.

Make sure that your keyboard is connected to the keyboard port of the switch. The USB ports on the switch has pictures that indicates where the keyboard and mouse should be connected.

The hotkey combination is CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + Port no.(1,2,3 or 4) + ENTER

Note: "tap the keys one at a time and not at the same time"

With GC S62 2 port KVM switch, can I transfer data from one computer to another. If so, how can I do it?


A KVM switch just allows multiple computers to share one keyboard, mouse and monitor. It doesn't allow the connected computers to communicate with each other. So no, it won't allow you to transfer data. If you want to do that, you'll need to connect the computers via a network (through a 4-port router, for example), or use the old-fashioned method of transferring files manually using a flash drive.

I have iogear miniview kvm (gcs62) keyboard works but mouse conn does not. Mluse is usb mouse with ps/2 adapter. Direct connection via usb works. used to also work with adapter but having tried it with kvm...


USB mouse with PS/2 adapter is not guaranteed to wok with GCS62. This KVM switch is designed to work with PS/2 keyboards and mice only.

When the USB mouse with PS/2 adapter is used in a computer directly, it will surely work, because the USB port can give enough power for the mouse to work. And it can easily convert the signal.

Unlike in KVM switch, the switch serves as a bridge between the mouse and the computer. And the computer does not easily recognize the mouse.

I would suggest to use a regular PS/2 mouse. Or if you want to use USB keyboard and mouse, you need to have a USB KVM switch. Model GCS632U.

Thank you and good luck!

Repeated IOGear KVM switch failures


As a wild guess, it sounds like a static discharge MIGHT be affecting the switcher causing it to crash.

Try increasing your humidity to 40% and grounding yourself before touching the keyboard... This is the season for these static electricity problems... get nipped all the time and you MAY not even feel it to be enough to zap the switch.

Hooked up a iogear cgs62 wont allow me to log onto


II had one of those with no problem at all other than many KVM's dont allow you to use some of the many extra keys you get on some of the better keyboards. If thats what you mean by connect to internet then its a common drawback of cheaper end KVM's even some of the better ones dont support fancy keyboard buttons.

GCS62 - both computers must be on for this thing to work?


It seems that you KVM switch is not working properly. computers connected to a KVM switch are not dependent to each other. you should be able to work on any of your computers while the others were turned off.

Laptop will not connect properly


If possible directly connect the KVM cables to the laptop computer. Try to avoid connecting the KVM cables to a docking station. Also if your KVM has manual port selection buttons on the front of the KVM try holding that button for about five seconds when switching ports.

Wobbly screen on mac laptop


are you using a Mac Mini-DVI to DVI adapter or any adapters? This is a VGA video output type of KVM switch so probably the problem is with the adapters involved to it.
