cyril7: Hi re RDP, if your home machine is running anything above home edition then you should be able to remote into your home machine from your work, I very much doubt mstsc has been disabled by your work gpo's.

Assuming the above, then you will need to enable RDP inbound on your home PC, and enable remote desktop in advanced settings.



And then there's also good old Chrome Remote Desktop. Install the software on your home PC under your personal Google account to allow connections (with a PIN) and then just use a web browser (both Chrome & Edge will work - not sure about Firefox) to connect. Nothing to install on your work PC, but you may have to use incognito mode to get it to prompt you for your personal Google login.

You can also use AnyDesk on your work PC without installation. Install AnyDesk on your home PC & configure unattended access. Then from your work PC, simply run the AnyDesk client & connect home. You can do the same with VNC as well.

I run a 34UC99 with a KVM (Webcam, Mouse dongle, Speaker amp and headphone DAC, and keyboard).


Monitor is connected to PC via DP and Work laptop via HDMI.


Runs fine, looking to sell it actually as I recently upgraded to a 34GN850 this week for gaming purposes.




Both monitors similar approach to use case... flick the monitor joystick to switch inputs, and press KVM button.









sounds perfect, my other LG monitor is similarly easy to switch sources. unfortunately price for the 34GN850 is more than I want to spend right now. 





What kind of budget are you looking to spend?

Just putting an alternative out there - I think the screen is capable of displaying inputs from two different computers at the same time (split screen)
Not sure if that would be acceptable or not - and I haven't really tried it myself, but it might be worth a go?


I have the same/similar monitor.  Switching inputs is a matter of 5-6 clicks of the buttons on the bottom of the screen.  
Fine for once/twice a day, but too slow for wanting to switch constantly.
