I could NOT get the "Accepted Answer" to work, or any of the others, as I found them to be WAY too complicated, for me, so I opted for something "Dirt Simple" here.
Here is a VERY simple and easy way to change status back to "Not Started" here.
But, this is a bit "dirty" so it may not be for all.
1. Change from "In Progress" to "Completed" here.
2. Change from "Completed" to "Re-Open" here.
3. See the status is back to "Not Started" here.
This works great for me, and just use a comment to explain the Completed/ReOpen here.
Note, our workflow is stock and simple for Tasks...
> Not Started, >In Progress, > Completed
Yes, I admit, our process is a bit "loose"...
...it works, it is simple, it is quick, it is easy, and it is sufficient.
Working software over comprehensive documentation.

If you don't want to create custom workflow for Service Desk, and just want manually to change the status, you can try automation rules
Now when you go write internal comment "Toggle Status" to ticket, the worfklow status changes from "Waiting for Support" to "Waiting for Customer" and vice versa
You can change the status of an issue even if there is not a defined transition for it. It involves exporting the issue as a CSV, editing the CSV, and then re-importing it. See the steps below.
Thank you for getting back with me. I didn't have the option to manually change the status when I selected 'Respond to customer' the status automatically changed. Do you happen to have a screenshot of where I can select the status options? For example, I would like to change the status to 'Requires Additional Resource' but when I select 'Respond to customer' I do not have any additional options to choose from.
Another thing I would like to note is that all JIRA status can only be changed to another status via "transitions". When you are in an issue, you will only see the buttons for the transitions that are available from that status. For example, the "Respond to customer" was a transition that moved the issue from its previous status to its current status of "waiting for support". If you do not see any more transition buttons in this status, this is because the current workflow you have set does not have any transitions out of this status.
