I have 2 laptops, 1 work and 1 personal and I can plug

This answer was rated:

I have 2 laptops, 1 work and 1 personal and I can plug either into my ‘hub’ device that facilitates 2 screens and a wireless keyboard and mouse. Both laptops use a USB-C connection to USB-A plugging into the ‘hub’ unit... Is there a switch device available that would allow me to switch between the 2 laptops (of course they cannot run simultaneously through to the same screens etc) so that I can choose between the 2 laptops using a switch rather than having to unplug and plug-in manually?

Brilliant... I have been looking for the right device for an age. Because there are so many variations on the switch boxes I was left flummoxed. Cheers.:. Order place job down
