I am about to play XIM Apex on PC Fortnite and I need a KVM switch to switch between xim and PC, which kvm switch should I get?

You don't need a KVM, a USB switch will do the job. However, Windows 10 has problems with USB switches and won't reliably swap a kb (mice seem fine) without crashing the USB host, requiring a PC reboot.

It's not a XIM issue, nor is a USB switch a problem on Mac, nor earlier versions of Windows, it's specific to Win 10.

A better approach would be to use the XIM Link app and a Belkin Easy Transfer Cable. Leave m/kb attached to PC and XIM to manage the swap to XIM. Learn more in the XIM Link subforum.
