Default Reboot recovery

Hey, I just recently installed twrp, and I know this a common question, but for the life of me, I can't access recovery from back buttons at all, hold power and down, get lg logo release, press again to recovery? Had to get quick reboot, but worried when flashing new Rom or mods won't be able to get into recovery for a fix if something goes Bork...I'll keep trying

When the phone is off, press and hold volume up and power button. Then you get into recovery...

From a power off state, hold power and volume down. When you see the LG logo, let go and quickly HOLD power and volume down again. Keep holding and after a few seconds you should see a white screen that says something about factory reset blah blah. Tap the power button 3 times and it will take you to TWRP. If you're ever stuck in a bootloop, long press the power button. When you feel a vibration, immediately go through the same steps to get back into recovery. Does take some practice so you may wanna try it when you have some spare time to get the hang of it.

you can use xposed module called Advanced power menu - it gives you an option to reboot into recovery using power button from the system shut down/power off menu...

before i found that module - i used "switch pro widget" which has a shut down/reboot icon included which worked as well...

OK, This is weird, it worked by holding power and volume down together for about 5 seconds, it popped up the same way, but appreciate the help
