P4317Q, hot key to switch devices?

Is there a way to create a hot key in Windows to switch between two devices? In Dell Display Manager, there's a hot key for PIP/PMB switching. I've tried the PMB which is okay, but I want to use the full screen when using either devices. Is this possible or is my only recourse to use the monitor buttons and menu?

I do not know of any 3rd party software that could "talk" to the P4317Q internal Input Source. DDM does have a command line command, "SetActiveInput" which switches the active input. But there is not a command line User's Guide to assist us in how to use it. I only know about it from other users.

Interesting and using the command line would work.

After doing a search on the DDM command lines, that led me to another community post where a member mentions that the documentation for DDM command lines can be found in:

c:\program files(x86)\dell\Dell Display Manager\readme.txt

Not exactly documentation, but it does list all of the available commands
