Two computers/one monitor

Does anyone know a way to "share" a monitor between two machines? Program or adapter? They wouldn't be running at the same time of course but my brother in laws computer desk is way too ........... cluttered say, to switch the cable each time.

How many inputs does the monitor have, just run a cable from each PC

Or buy another monitor, I have 6 I don`t use, you can have 2 of them

Lol, thats good! We've got a few just gathering dust around here too. Brother in law changed his mind so I'll be marking this as solved though. Been working on my Sisters and Brother in laws machines ALL WEEKEND now and almost done.(whew!Sigh of relief) Between Sis's PUP's/Malware and B.I.L.'s reinstall of 7 on one machine and upgrade to 10 on another I've had enough of Windows update to last me for a looooong time!
