Adjusting Lever Reach

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Adjusting Lever Reach

I posted this in the mechanics sub-forum and got zero replies. So hoping for some insight here instead:

I recently bought a 2019 Trek Domane SLR7 Disc with Ultegra Di2. The reach for my left hand to the lever is a bit long and I'd like to shorten that up a touch.
I know there is a screw/bolt that can be turned with an wrench that is visible/exposed under the hood. Do I simply turn that to whatever adjustment I need? It's not a part that will back out or get too loose?

Thanks...
