Long Press on "Back Button" doesn't force close Apps on new phone -- why, please?

Hi there, I am a long time Xiaomi phone user like most here and I am extremely attached to long pressing the "Back Button" in order to force close an app.
But this option is not working on the new phone I bought today (Redmi Note 9 Note).
I saw one other report of this in a forum from 2020 but it seemed to indicate this was a bug in Miui 12 and if it's a bug, wouldn't it have been fixed by now?
Is there a setting somewhere to enable this shortcut because I couldn't find anything?
Or perhaps there is an app that could "assign" this behavior?
(I don't think there is though -- I tried to program this behavior for a friend who asked me on an LG V35 and couldn't find any way to do it).
Thanks for any suggestions!

Thank you so much! My menu hierarchy is missing the "gesture shortcuts" header but button shortcuts is still there. Really grateful, it's the one shortcut I can't do without!
