Sorry to correct you, but it's power and volume UP ! not down! Of course what's important is to have the phone connected via USB cable to a PC, or pen drive, power bank etc, otherwise it will just boot to normal Android OS.

Thanks...I meant to write volume up but I was screaming at some to put their music volume "down"...down and up got mixed up...heehhe...the perils of multitasking!

All others can open recovery with buttons itself

Not necessarily, any USB-C to USB-A cable should work. Make sure the phone is completely switched off. You need to press vol up+power for some time until the Samsung splash screen changes to the recovery mode.
