Access Retroarch menu while playing ROM (to switch games) rather than having to go back to GS Launcher

I want to change my 3rd button on the light key to pull up the RetroArch menu.
I see in the retroarch.cfg;

input_player1_l = “h”
input_player1_r = “l”
input_player1_r2 = “o”
input_player1_l2 = “y”

It seems the key I’m wanting to use is configured as “L3” currently but the value is Null. I see that notated on the keypad diagram but don’t understand how it’s still working as a shift key. I’d like to retain the shift key on the front and turn this into a menu toggle. Maybe I can hijack the input_menu_toggle = “f1” key?

Any ideas or if anyone wants to help please?

Sorry but, what is the link between the topic title and he content??

I was thinking the only way I could get back to RetroArch from a ROM was by adding another key to serve as a menu button. As it turns out there is a setting in RetroArch that lets you set a combination of keys that pulls up the menu. I have it set to Start and Select now and it’s working.

Oh! you want a key to get the retroarch menu ok.

The title is to be honest not really clear :sweat_smile: but ok

Does that look any better?
