At some point, we have to assume that the user has a certain level or certain kind of knowledge.
I would guess that the more prevalent key would be Enter.

Enter and Return are the same keys, and anybody who does not know this
should brush up on computers before attempting to run ANY operating
system. BUT that's my opinion. So, since the documentation is
inconsistent, if it's that big of a deal, all pages that reference the
'return' or 'enter' keys should be changed to reference only
one or the
OR it could be changed to say "push the button that does the thing where
it saves data or causes a command to run"
This reminds me of Homer Simpsons's "press any key - where's the
