    Yes, it's kind of barebone on the Switch.

    The command is easy. Turn off the Switch fully. Then press power and "- +" volume.
    To return, just hold the power button down for 4 seconds.


    I did however like that you can factory reset it without loosing your saves. This means they're on a different part of the system, just like androids custom recover (TWRP) where you can skip certain folders to get wiped. (this is an example, I know it's not running a complete android system even if they might share similarities)

    And with this knowledge we'll find a way to use Recovery/Safe Mode to install a permahax on the Switch.

    Give it time, the OS looks very good and stable (fingers crossed)...many more features will be added soon with new system updates.
