Crtl ctrl x NUMBER.

The command sequence is the control key. You hit it twice to enter the OSD (On Screen Display) From there, I'm sure you know where to go. Should you require more help, you can get the manual for this item here:

I am looking for the hotkey combination for our HP 336044-b21 KVM switch from a iogear KVM?

IOGEAR KVM switches uses Scroll Lock for the hot key. The models of IOGEAR KVM switches starts the letters "GCS". I don't think that your HP 336044-b21 came from IOGEAR.

Anyway, if that's an IOGEAR KVM switch, you may quickly press Scroll Lock twice + Enter (for two port KVM).

Scroll Lock twice + port # + Enter (for 4 port, or 8 port KVM).

NOTE: You need to verify the brand of your KVM switch by referring to the user manual of it.

Thank you and good luck!

Can't switch ports using PC keyboard

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"

NexxTech mini KVM switch - hotkey required to switch

Hit scroll lock twice quickly (within 2 seconds) then either "1" or "2" to select the input you want. I needed to remember how to do this myself today since I haven't used this KVM in years, having replaced it with a 4-port ages ago.

Tripp Lite B034-002-R 2-port

press numlock twice. There may be other hotkeys, but that's the one that I use. Occasionally mine gets confused (because of reboots and hibernation) and I need to unplug the usb cables from each PC and then plug them back in. Then it works again.

The Compaq 4110 KVM switch was actually manufactured by Apex which is now part of Avocent. Your switch is Compaq's rebranding of the Apex/Outlook EL-80DT from Avocent.

The key to display the KVM switch menu should be PrintScreen. Here is a link to the user manual:
