How does Inkscape make a node segment smaller symmetrically?

In this YouTube video at this point in time the designer makes the node segment smaller symmetrically so that it stays centered by using the keyboard, but it does not show the shortcuts.

How is this done?

You need to have the Show Transform Handles option selected in the tool controls along the top

Then use the Edit Paths by Nodes tool F2 to select the two nodes by clicking and dragging a selection around them
