There are cases in which one or more personal computers (PCs) are used by several people. Examples of these include study activities, academic classes, and conferences. In such cases, operation devices used to operate PCs, such as mouses or keyboards, are handed between users. This causes a burden for users and reduces efficiency. In this study, to improve the efficient use of multiple PCs, we develop a system and interface that can operate multiple PCs using a single device and share an any-application window between PCs. In this paper, we present the architecture of any-application window sharing mechanism and its access management mechanism. Moreover, we conducted performance evaluations of our system. We concluded that the system works practically while 20 or less guests are connecting to a host.
