      I saw somewhere that you have to use LT (for Xbox) to hold your breath but I don’t know which button you can use on PC.

    PC version – Hold RMB and LMB to use maintenance jack. Nothing happens. q to back out, E to try again, but what could be going wrong?

        To use maintenance jack to open doors on an iMac you use the A key? What do you mean (left)??

      If you’re talking about the Flashlight, you hold down whatever button you use to turn it on. For PS4, the Triangle button turns off the flashlight, but HOLDING IT DOWN will recharge the batteries.
