switching monitor from video to desktop and back

HP Recommended
pavillion
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I occasionally use my monitor to watch video (via dish network) and it works fine to switch manually from video to the desktop and back.   That process requires going to input control by manually touching the bottom right of the monitor frame, selecting HDMI and then OK, and then repeating the process when going the other way (HDMI to DVI).  This is fine, but cumbersome.  I wonder if there is an easier way to do this, perhaps some keyboard command?  Not a big deal but any suggestions would be much appreciated.  Incidentally, I'm now on year three of my HP monitor/desktop and both continue to work great with no trouble (as does my HP officejet pro 8620).

If you're talking about switching the video inputs to the monitor -- that is a hardware-only function, there is no command or feature you can use in Windows to do this.

Thanks.  I sort of thought that's where we'd wind up.  Might be something to think about from a human factors design standpoint.  Probably not a big deal.
