USB Debugging on Galaxy A50 using a keyboard

Hello community,

I have recently broken my screen on my A50. I sadly don't have any backup and when I want to connect it to my PC it doesn't show up.

The solution I came up with is that I first need to enable USB Debugging via keyboard by "blindly" pressing the right combination of keys. So in order to do that I need a community member with a A50 to go through that process and tell me which keys I have to press how many times. Let me give you an example for the steps for my Galaxy A55 which is sadly not working for the A50:
Press "Windows key" to open the app window on phone --> Press Ctrl+F and type "settings"--> Press TAB 2x and press Enter to access the settings --> "Down" 27x and "Enter" to access "About phone" --> "Down" x4 and "Enter" to access "Software information" --> "Down" 6x and "Enter" x7 and input your PIN and Enter to enable "Developer options" --> "Up" x6 + Enter to return to the menu before --> "Up" x5 + Enter to back once more --> "Down" x1 and "Enter" to access Developer options --> Down x14 and Enter and "Right" x2 and Enter to enable USB Debugging.

I hope you guys can help me and others with the same issue.

Kind Regards

I didn't find any videos with this method.
Another option would be if someone could help me enable ScreenReader or Talkback "blind" with the keyboard. With these I can navigate to the USB Debugging option much better.

Yes I've seen them. Multiple things don't work for me. I can't connect a TV because the A50 doesn't support HDMI. Can't access via USB because I have to press the option on my phone to allow data transfer which I cannot do because of the broken screen.  Connect Keyboard works but again broken screen and so on...
