I have a laptop and a desktop at home. My hope is to be able to use the same keyboard+mouse for both computers.
My plan is to get an extra unifying receiver. So, desktop and laptop each has unifying receiver.
Is there any way for the keyboard+mouse to choose which unifying receiver it connects to and how to swap between them?
I know I can use KVM for that purpose, but I hate the cables clutter on my desk.

Unfortunately a keyboard/mouse can only be paired to one receiver at a time, you could run the unifying software to pair the devices each time you wanted to switch computers, but it would require another mouse/keyboard to do so.
The best solution would be a KVM, but you should make sure ahead of time that the KVM will work with the mouse and keyboard, not all do and we don't support our products through KVMs.

Albert has an excellent idea. Many people want the funtion of KVM switch (in this case just KM switch) with the wireless keyboard/mouse combination. It should not be too difficult for Logitech to make one wireless KM combo that can control multiple computers (2, 4 or even 8). For example, pair one keyboard/mouse with 4 receivers. Plug in the receivers to 4 different computers. Hit Control-Control-1 to select computer 1. Control-Control-2 to select computer 2. etc. So, Logitech, how about it?
