Hi,
I have two monitors running from one computer, is there a way, where i can connect up 2 mice and use them to do different things - like 2 people using the computer at once - 1 broswing the web, one writing a letter in word etc.
If so, How?
Cheers
O-when did they change the site to how it is now (i ain't been here 4 a while :(

No, well I don't think so anyway,

You may be able to hook one up to a serial port and the other to ps2 but I think they will probably will conflict (with the mouse trying to go one way with one person and the other way with the other person).

Fergie,

What you want to do can't be done. Having two screens on one computer does not show two desktops, just one wide one, so in effect it just operates as one wide screen, so its not going to be able to be used by two people at once.

OK Thanks
It was just another wild thought.
