    Hi all,

    I wish to be able to dock my laptop to my Desktop computer screen.

    however, I also want to be able to use the same keyboard & mouse, without having to unplug them from the PC.

    Is there a device / docking station, that I can buy - that I simply connect my laptop to, and then it lets show the laptop on my desktop monitor & then control it with my keyboard and mouse?

    OCUK don't sell them, but what you are looking for is a KVM switch, the cheaper ones look they only do VGA. If you are gaming I don't know if this will cause a lag effect
