using such as a printer, scanner or a modem, and have to switch
cables every time they are needed. One solution would be to
reach in the back of the computer and accidentally disconnect

drivers needed are installed, that's it! When ready to print,
just depress the port selector button and that computer now is
able to share the printer.
