How To Edit Shortcut Menu In Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has a long list of features that you can access from the main menu. However, to make it even easier for players, the game actually has a Shortcut Menu that gives quick access to up to four features.

These features range from opening the map to checking your quest log to changing time to change your party skills to access your inventory and more.

There are less than three dozen features that you can access in Xenoblade Chronicles 3. You, hence, have the option of pinning your four most favorite or most-used features on the Shortcut Menu for quick and easy access.

The following guide will explain how to access and customize the Shortcut Menu in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

How To Open The Shortcut Menu In Xenoblade Chronicles 3

You only need to hold down the ZL button to open the Shortcut Menu. It will appear at the bottom of the screen, tucked away in the right-hand corner. You can then tap the A, B, X, or Y buttons to access their respective, pinned features.

Take note that the Shortcut Menu will show four pinned features by default. You can though change them to whatever you find to be essential.
