I have to assume there's an easy fix for this, but I've searched everywhere. I capture the desktop, specifically apps like Photoshop / Illustrator etc.., and I would like to be able to hit F3 for example, to toggle inputs so I can switch between a live camera input and the desktop input.

Right now I would have to manually select the vMix window and hit F3.

Any way to fix this? Sorry, newb question and I'm sure it's an easy one.

EDIT! Nevermind, found it. Not *very* easy, but download the free AutoHotKey.

And I used the following script code in case this helps others:

IfWinExist, vMix
ControlSend,, Send {F3}, vMix,

"vMix" is the inactive window's title.

Thank you for this. It solved a problem for me. I am having trouble figuring out how to do the same thing but with different keys. Your script for F3 worked great, but I tried the same script with F2 and a numpad key, and they did not work for me. I'm totally new to this stuff.
