    I have the MX Keys and MX master 3 combo. I have paired them to the same unifying receiver combo on 3 devices.

    I want to switch devices from the keyboard on both keyboard and mouse

    Logitech, please fix this. This is extermely annoying - having a work computer with a VPN so can't use Flow, having to turn the mouse 50 times a day to press on the small button is stupid.

    Hey Siddharth this standard answer "stay tuned" is not helping anyone. Get " the team " to come back with an action plan including a timeline for a fix, and communicate THAT to your customers.

    +1 on this request! It would save me the pain of having to click the button on my MX Master 2S every time.

    Without this, the mouse isMX mouse is like 6/10 for me. Flow would be great, but desn§t work for me as for many others on work computer. Switching keybpard is easy, but than be forced to switch mouse too is pain.

    Dear Logitech,

    Is there any update regarding the plans for adding this feature?

    I am really disappointed that this is not a standard feature. I have purchased the MX Keys and MX Master 3 specifically for this reason. Flow does not cover all my needs at the moment.

    Please add the option to switch both the Keyboard and Mouse from the Keyboard's easy switch buttons.

    Can we stop pretending that if we had this feature, we would still use Flow where possible? :)  We probably wouldn't. This only applies to users of both MX keys and mouse. 

    Man, i am so tired of thinking "why am i doing this" while turning over the mouse every 2 minutes. If only i could use the useless thumb button to switch through devices at least.

    Please make this feature. Or at least a workaround... F.E. button could work for the keyboard AND mouse between different unifying controllers or mouse thumb button should let remap functionality to switch devices...

    Dear Everybody who are truly disappointed! 

    As far as I can see after Logitech is not open to do anything in this topic: I think it is the time to ask popular youtubers to create a “watch this before you buy Logitech Mx Keys” video. If you can do the same just let us know and we will like it and share it to make it popular. Let’s do this way and save a lot of wasting money for others.

    This must be the easiest and most useful thing for Logitech to implement. 
    I assumed this would work, buying both mx keys and mx master 3 mouse. 
    The turn mouse upside down to press a button 100+ times a day is really annoying.
    Flow does not work that well for my setup so this would be a feature highly appreciated.

    Same as several people here. 

    In the products description, both Easy Switch and Flow seems to be related in your wording. 

    Conceptually, both are very close. 

    It is clearly misleading us in our purchase (should be part of a FAQ as so many people have misunderstood this). 

    Flow is fine as it is, but two cons: 

    1. there's a kind of latency from switching from the profile 1 (Unify one) and the other profiles (Bluetooth ones)... quite nullifying the experience... 
    2. this kind of feature helps a lot in a Work From Home scenario. and in WFH situation, we are more likely using company's VPN and unfortunately, Flow is not working at all in that case... that's why the use of Easy Switch for linked keyboard/mouse couple is a must-have !

    Dear Logitech!

    If it is possible to do it by me with you API just let me know! I truly believe we will develop this feature if it is possible by any kind of API for your hardwares

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Same here. I've bought the MX keys and MX master 2s to use on my private devices + work one with VPN where I can't install any additional software. I assigned keyboard and mouse to the same device number but switching mouse and keyboard separately beetween my devices is hell pain. I hope you will made it ! New year new opportunities :)

    I've been waiting for this since the MX Keys launched and I'm really surprised it hasn't been implemented at all. Flow works <50% of the time for me, and it'd be so much easier to have the mouse switch with the dedicate switch key than manually flip over the mouse and press the small button a couple of times for each switch.

    What really surprises me is that the most commented tickets of the support forum are all requesting this same feature but Logitech Support has only replied once 6 month ago and never again

    +1  Love the hardware but in the same boat as many with a personal and work computer that I cannot use the Flow software with. Having the mouse follow the keyboard switch would be super helpful.

    Please add this feature :-(. I use windows and linux and it's very annoying. I have mx keyboard and mouse too !

    please add this functionality.

    this is a must have. I use my work laptop via VPN (which Flow won't work) and my personal Mac side by side.

    Keyboard switches very easy via the buttons but it is painful to turn the mouse back and push that little button multiple times.

    when we switch the keyboard, mouse should follow too.

    +1.

    Flow on M1 Mac to Win10 is inconsistent.  Win10 to M1 Mac works 95% on first Move to Edge.

    Sometimes 2nd machine is on VPN thus separate network.

    As I see it, these are enterprise level products. As such, you have to know that flow will not be possible in 99% of the cases for users. In my case, I CAN install flow, but I need to control 3 different machines on 3 different subnets so flow will never work.

    To be honest, Flow is a marketing gimmick aimed at the causal home user. Although, power users will appreciate the convenience of not having to configure synergy, MWoB, or the like, they have different needs than the home user.

    How is this not default behavior? Such an oversight for an otherwise excellent set of products. The icon on the buttons even indicates two devices

    I'm amazed this isn't possible - kind of defeats the purpose of making the devices switchable if the can't work together

    This would be very much appreciated.  Flow doesn't work very well at all on my second monitor, so I'm always smashing the mouse at the edge of the screen to get it to switch which is even more annoying than flipping the mouse over to get it to switch.
