Disable AND Enable Keyboard FROM the Keyboard


I have 4 computers and I currently have 4 USB cradles so every time I want to switch to a new computer I have to unplug the keyboard/mouse dongle and replug it in the appropriate cradle. I would prefer to connect the single dongle to a 4 way USB switch then choose the target computer by remapping 4 of the keys I don't need, for example:

F9 -Enable Computer 1, disable computer 2,3, and 4
F10-Enable Computer 2, disable computer 1,3, and 4
F11-Enable Computer 3, disable computer 1,2, and 4
F12-Enable Computer 4, disable computer 1,2, and 3

Thank You

I suggest you get a 4 port KVM (Keyboard, Video,Mouse) switch then you can share these three devices between your systems changing system probably by hot keying between them.
