Default Easy way to Manual Recovery Mode

hello everyone,
Whats the easy way to manually go to Recovery Mode?

i tried vol up and power together but nothing shows up except a blinking color home button.

Do i need to press the home button?

Thanks

Press vol up and power until the lg logo and the boot error message (that appears on top left corner) come up, release power button but keep holding vol up until cwm appears.

is possible to go to "stock recovery" if the phone is not rooted yet and no custorm recovery?

Note: My friends phone has a lot of files and he forgot the pin and its phone is crack and unresponsive screen.

I have E988, and usually what i do to be able to get into recovery would be pressing both power and volume up button at the same time till the first LG logo appears and disappears. Then I release the power button, after which I do combinations of <2 down button presses then press the power button>, up until after the second LG logo appears and disappears, then recovery finally shows up. However I'm not sure about stock recovery though as i have cwm

Its kinda confusing. I tried your method but I only get a black screen and a blinking LED home button when I press the vol down and power together.
