Can I use an 8 cup french press to make 2 cups of coffee?

Hi! I have an 8 cup french press that I bought for making cold brew coffee.

Can I use it to make only 2 cups of hot coffee?

I have the bodum brand one and noticed that when i only have two scoops of grounds in the 8 cup, then the grounds don't seem to get pressed when i push the filter down. Is this actually important or does the press do the real magic?
