Logitech Flow is a feature part of the “Logitech Options” app for Windows 11, 10, and macOS that allows you to share your mouse and keyboard across devices over the network without the need to have multiple peripherals on your desk.

You will need at least a compatible Logitech mouse or keyboard connected using the Unifying USB receiver or Bluetooth to use this feature. Some of the supported mice include MX Master 3, MX Master 2S, MX Ergo, MX Anywhere 2S, M585 Multi-Device Silent, Multi-Device M590, and M720 Triathlon. Supported keyboards include MX Keys, Craft, K780, K380, K375s, and MK850.

Since this is a Logitech product, you will need to resource other applications if you do not have a compatible peripheral.

In this guide, you will learn the steps to set up the Logitech Flow feature to share the mouse and keyboard with other Windows 11 or 10 devices.

  5. Click the Continue button.

After you complete the steps, the software will search and find the other device on the network, and it will automatically finish the setup. It’s that simple. Then you can start using the peripherals between computers.

In the “Flow” tab, you will now see some settings to customize the experience. Although the default settings should work for most users, you can change how to move the mouse between computers. For example, you can set it to switch devices as you move the cursor to the edge of the screen or press the “Ctrl” key while moving the mouse to the edge.

You can enable or disable screen corners, and you can decide whether to enable or disable copy and paste between devices.

If you are connecting a keyboard, you will also see other settings.

On the right side, the squares represent each connected device, and the “Plus” button allows you to set up another computer. And you can drag each device to match its physical location.
