Hotkeys for D-Link DKVM-2

The users manual for this device suggests hot keys can be used. I get the beep when I hit the scroll lock key twice, If I hold the "command" key down and hit the other suggested keys nothing happens. No switch. Suggestions?

Re: Hotkeys for D-Link DKVM-2

In my case, it is <Scroll Lock>, <Scroll Lock>, <1> or <2>
And NOT F1 or F2 as the previous writer suggests.
Good Luck,

I just bought a 2-port kvm switch model no. F1DJ102P (P81551). Can you please tell me the keyboard "hot key" to switch from 1 computer to the other without pressing the button on the KVM unit itself?...

You can conveniently change ports on the Switch through a keyboard command
sequence using the “SCROLL LOCK” key and up and down arrow keys. To send
commands to the Switch, press the “SCROLL LOCK” key twice within two seconds.
You will hear a beep for confirmation. Then you can press the up or down arrow
keys to switch between ports.

Can't switch

Make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the correct usb slots on the switch. One is labled for keyboard, and the other for mouse. If you mix these up, those hotkeys will not work! :) Also, try tapping scroll-lock twice to switch. It's much better than trying to use the num-lock + and - keys, since it's only a two-way KVM. Tapping Num-lock twice automatically switches, so you don't have to hit multiple buttons.

How do I switch between computers with my KVM switch?

Hit scroll lock key twice and then the up arrow. That is the hot key command. There is also a manual switch on the unit.

Not working

Make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the right USB ports on the switch. If you plug the keyboard into the mouse USB port the hotkeys will not work! The USB ports on the KVM switch are labeled under each port, with a mouse and keyboard icon respectively.From the Quick Start Guide/Manual: The Numlock hotkeys are listed as:
[Num Lock]+[-] [1] Switches to output 1
[Num Lock]+[-] [2] Switches to output 2
[Numlock]+[-] [A] Auto-scans and chooses which ever port is connected.
Alternatively: Tap [Scroll Lock] twice to automatically switch between ports.
Note: I've never been able to get the Numlock key combinations to work correctly. I always just use double-tap [Scroll Lock] trick to switch.
If you get stuck with your scroll-lock and Alpha lock lights flashing, just hit [Esc] to fix it.
Source: (Scroll down to "Quick Start Guide" and choose CS62U out of the drop down).

Users manual for KVM model ''MT-471s Auto KVM''

turns out if I double tap and hold the scroll lock key, the kvm rapid beeps and while in this mode, I can hit the numbers 1 to 4 to pick the port I want to connect to.

The double tap on the scroll lock suggestion was sent to me by a fixYa responder. Thanks,

KVM hotkey

Hold down the Scroll Lock key for several seconds. The switch should beep briefly and blink. Hit either the "1" or "2" key on your keyboard to switch to the corresponding computer connection.
