Customize button shortcuts

In the Xiaomi smartphone's settings, we find some key shortcut options for faster access, so we can assign the following button shortcuts:

  • Launch camera
  • Take a screenshot
  • Launch Google Assistant
  • Turn off screen
  • Turn on torch
  • Close current app
  • Open split screen
  • Show menu

Note: In this guide, we will assign the gesture "wipe three fingers down" or "hold down menu key" to the "take screenshot" function, and more options can be accessed the same way.
