Default Keyboard and mouse sharing with a Windows computer

Well I've bought the Note 12.2 to boost my productivity and to do that I need to share my PC's mouse and keyboard with it,

I thought of side sync however it turned out the tablet only work as a host for a phone screen and doesn't connect to a host computer.

Then I tried share KM which as far as I can tell never works, tried it on SIII, NoteII, NoteIII, Note 10.1 2014 and never got it to work, still putting hope in it and reading all the great reviews I decided to install it on my 12.2 only to find a message saying that beta test have ended please update the application with no updated version available any where.

Is there any way I can achieve keyboard and mouse sharing between my PC and my 12.2?
Any way to actually achieve that seamless integration between windows and the android tablet just as if it was an extra screen?

UPDATE

Thanks for every one who replied, to make what I need clearer please watch the following video:

1- Samsung SideSync works when using a phone with a PC or a phone with a tablet, but not using a tablet with a laptop, which I need

2- ShareKM is abandoned and doesn't work any more.

3- Synergy is extremely buggy and takes more time to get it working than it actually operating as intended.

4- after digging deeper i found an app called take control lite, however it requires root access.

Thankfully towel root works brilliantly and doesn't trip Knox so i will try this app and update with the results.

UPDATE 2

Take Control Lite doesn't work with Note Pro for some reason it crashes every time you try to establish a connection.

I'm confused, are you looking to remotely control your tablet or are you looking to use it as a second display. For the latter I have used Air Display with limited success. I say limited because the resolution of the tablet being high the resulting scale of elements on screen is ridiculously small.

Ah. I'm unaware of any working alternatives at this time. Synergy for Android doesn't work on this device as far as I can tell. It looks like ShareKM has been abandoned temporarily. Perhaps contact samsung to inquire about their intentions to support Side Sync on this tablet?

So if you want your Note to be like "extra monitor" I can't tell you any apps. Apps I linked earlied was to get tablet screen shown on PC and that way you can use mouse & keyboard on your device. To do kinda this.

Uhm, you do know SideSync 3.0 comes pre-installed on this device?


SM-N9005 International Galaxy Note 3, DBT NB7 Stock
SM-G900F International Galaxy S5, PHN NCE Stock
SM-P905 NotePro 12.2 LTE Black, DBT NC3 Stock

ShadowLea, How many times you have been able to control your Note Pro from your PC through SideSync 3.0? I have succes percent full 0.

I can control my Note 3 with no issues but SideSync on PC wont even find my NPro, so thats it

I did, but I assumed by 'side sync' he meant the process of side syncing, not the app SideSync. (Note the difference in names..)

I haven't given it a try at all. (As pretty obvious from the first-time launch message in the screenshot ) It's not something that is of use to me.
