Moving the mouse doesn't alter what is called the "focus" - which is the control that will receive keyboard input.

Try it manually: create a form with three text boxes, and wave the mouse about. No matter where the mouse is, what you type will always go to the same textbox unless you actually click the mouse button to move the Caret - the vertical line - into a different one. The normal way to set where input goes is to use the Focus method for that control rather than try to wave the mouse about and hope!

If you have multiple applications then it's even worse, because the keyboard input always goes to the application which has the focus, not the app the mouse is over, and even simulating the mouse click will change the app focus, but not the control focus.

How can I determine the key press in a specific place on the screen
keybd_event Location = New Point(950, 330)

You can't.
Keypresses aren't related to a "screen position" they are related to a "input window": a text box, a button, a scroll bar - something that "knows what to do with typed stuff".

The screen doesn't - it is just a display device - and the mouse location is completely unrelated to the keyboard. Try it: start typing in a text box and move the mouse about all you like. Does the keyboard input become even slightly upset or difficult? No - because the two are completely independant!

It is possible to intercept keyboard input with "non input controls" such as forms, and many apps to that to provide "function keys" - but that information doesn't have any mouse data associated with it, and because Windows isn't a real time operating system the mouse position when the keystroke is processed can be wildly different from the position it was at when the key was pressed.

What are you trying to do that you think this is the solution?
