Does this switch treat the monitor as unplugged for the output not in use? If I have one monitor on KVM and one not, if I switch the KVM to a laptop, will all of the windows on the KVM monitor shift over to the other one?
Would be a little more flexible if the A/B cables—particularly the video cables—weren't wired into it, as I need adapters for both the A and B device that make the system bulkier. But this is a minor complaint.
I used this to connect my computer with a DisplayPort monitor to my HP Zbook 15 G5 laptop. The laptop has an HDMI output and I couldn't connect the male DisplayPort to it. Turns out there was a USB-C port on the laptop and I bought the Monoprice Select Series USB-C to DisplayPort Adapter, Product # 13234 and it worked right away.
