    RETURN! No need for Enter⌤
    since we've got TAB.

    Enter, I hardly see return being used anywhere. Although I believe one is the key next to the letters and the other is on the numpad.

    @LucaScorpion today there is no difference between the two. The name Enter is used more but the fuction it performs is the one of the Return key

    @orijin Some programs still distinguish between the two though (Photoshop for example)

    @LucaScorpion that's true. i meant to say there's no difference in most cases.

    of course there is software that distinguishes between the two, but they don't perform the original functions corelating to their names where they originated.

    return was used in text input for a new line where as enter was used in filling forms to jump to the next field and help the typist fill the forms faster.

    I wasnt aware there was any difference between them - just the same key with two names!

    Some keyboards have return, some have enter... most these days have a (carriage return!) symbol on the main return key...

    ZX81 called it NEW-LINE... :-) Maybe ENTER should be called LINEFEED?

    Or..?

    Definitely Enter, I won't be returning to that line of code anyway.

    Return is the one on the keyboard, enter is the one on the numpad

    Photoshop is one of the few programs that make this distinction 🙃

    @ElectricCoffee Some keyboards say ENTER on the main keyboard...

    @spl0 it's not about what it says on the keyboard, but what signal it sends when you press the key
    If you use the Russian layout on an English keyboard you'll get almost no relation between what's written and what's sent

    @ElectricCoffee I'm not using a Russian layout!
