Nintendo Switch: How to open a Quick Settings side menu in game?

The Quick Settings Menu is a clever secret on the Nintendo Switch.

Those who already have a Nintendo Switch in hand know how fast and easy it is to navigate the menu interface. But when it comes to adjusting the system settings to save some extra playing time or just put the system on Sleep Mode, every second counts.

This is why this tip from Reddit user Yourautism is really handy: If you press and hold the HOME button while in game, a quick-settings side menu will appear. This will allow you to adjust the Brightness (manual or auto mode), put the Airplane mode on/off, or simply put the system in Sleep Mode.
