I'm no touch typist, so in the dark, I often miss trying to find Shift-Fn-N. Is it possible to change the key combination to something simpler?

I don't know if it's possible to re-define the shortcut keys, but as a work-around:
I too find it very awkward to do Shift+Fn+N especially while lying in bed in the dark.

Instead, I do Fn+Bksp (to open Settings) and then Cosmo Settings and then use the slider at the top.

I'd rather have an easier keystroke also, but for me this feels the more convenient option until there's a better way.


Now I just wish that the Android settings menus would respect my Dark Mode config setting. Sometimes I use the "invert colors" option but it isn't awesome when there are graphics.

Yeah, that's kind of what I'm doing--I put Settings on the Planet App bar, so I only have to hit the Alt key and the rest can be done by the screen.

I didn't find an option for changing the keystroke in Button Remapper Pro, but I haven't yet looked at other apps.

I've had few Lenovo laptops, at those it's 'Fn' + 'Spcase' and it's loopping 50% -> 100% -> 0% -> 50% -> 100%-> 0%

That would be quite simple for Cosmo also.

My Cosmo forgets the previous setting after each reboot. Does that happen to you as well?

It's a sliding scale of brightness, no? So to turn it off, you have to slide it all the way to the left. Perhaps that's what the Cosmo is remembering.

The N is pretty easy to find once you've realized that its right edge is at the same position as the right edge of the space bar.

But still, there could be nicer key combinations, of course, especially ones where you don't have to hit three keys at the same time.
