I need a keyboard shortcut to open System Preferences in my MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, 2017)
running Mojave (OS version 20.14.6)

I've gone to,
System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App shortcuts ,
clicked "+" to add "System Preferences" to "All Applications" and "All controls"
and gave it the keystroke shortcut option+`

Screen Shot 2021-12-01 at 3.13.40 PM.png

then I quit Firefox, rebooted, and the shortcut doesn't work.

Then I added ellipses to the end of the name of System Preferences…
using option+; to create the ellipses, quit Firefoxk, rebooted . . .
and the shortcut still doesn't work.

What am I missing??

Thanks!

Cuz I don't want to mouse.
I want to use a keyboard shortcut.
Mousing is inefficient.
I have another Mac running Monterey and my keyboard shortcut works.
I am not ready to upgrade to Monterey in my Macbook just yet.
Nonetheless, I still need to access Mojave's System Preferences using a keyboard shortcut.
