The return and enter keysThe return or enter key is a key on the keyboard that you use to either tell the computer to do something, or start a new paragraph in a word processing document.

For example, if you enter some numbers into a cell on a spreadsheet, you hit the return key to comit the data to the spreadsheet.

On keyboards, the return key (circled in red) and the enter key (circled in green) have the same effect.
