  3. Disable auto-queen temporarily

When playing a game, is there a way to turn off auto promotion to queen for one move (Without going to settings)?

Yes, just hold control.

I'm not sure,if there is a way to change auto-queen setting for 1 move,but one of the way i would do is that turn on another tab to change the setting for a moment and after moving you can change that setting back as well.

As messyanwer said.
Here is the video for it.

But still thanks for showing a way to change auto-queen option.

Good to know tyvm for this post. Lotta times a extra knight is way more useful; even instant mate at times.
