Post I need help finding something.

So, I have a computer and an xbox, which I use mouse and keyboard for both of them, but it is really time consuming and difficult for me to continue swapping the usb cables(since they are under a desk with tons of wires and little space). Is there something that would allow me to plug my mouse usb into that would split the connection and I could choose which input it would go to? It doesnt have to be exactly that, just something that would do the job. Sorry for the bad wording.

Please give any feedback. Thanks
