Default Key to switch b/n 2 PCs

Hi folks..

Does anyone know which key strokes are used to swotch between two systems.

I have connected my two CPUS to a 4port KVM switch box as well as the monitor, keyboard and mouse. But now i need to know how to switch between these two CPUs?
Which are the key storkes that is used to switch from one CPU to another? Or can i set the desired Key combinations myself?
Or is there anyway that i could find out the keys to be used to switch from one to another?

Please help......

The best thing to do would be to look it up in the manual.

I believe the default for most is something like ctrl+F5 or Shift+F5

Oh no its not correct i think..
Anyway thanks for the reply.
It might work for the switch box with only 2 ports. This has four.
And i got the problem solved.
The hot keys used for such multiple port ( more than two) is

ctrl + ctrl + the port name as per the display on the front panel, like A or B.
And some products like the Fujitsu KVM switch gives the user the choice of Hot keys, but not the one i have CYBEX Switchview.
But Thanks anyway..
