There's plenty of info on non-working keys for notebooks and dirty keyboards - but nothing in them seems applicable since the keyboard does work.
It's just stopped working within a specific OS. In the International pane of SysPrefs, Input Menu, turn on "show input menu" and "keyboard viewer," then in the menu the little flag icon , open the keyboard viewer. In OS 9 this was called the "key caps" app. See if the key is recognized there. The numpad works fine, as do the plus and minus keys. Only the Enter is not working.
I tried 2 keyboards and I get the same problem with both, so it's got to be a setting somewhere. And indeed, pressing Enter-L puts the cursor in the location bar of my browser, just like Command-L would. Is there a way to remap it? I would check this post.
I don't have my macbook to try it out myself but there were two potential solutions. Either using a program called Double Command or looking under the system preferences for modifier keys.

I want f13 and 14 to do the same for my home address. I am using a Logitech K at the moment, but I would switch to make this happen. I've tried setting and to auto-replace with my emails, but it doesn't seem to work for text fields or when I really need it.
I'm doing a lot of keyboarding, and would like to add a delete key that isn't "so far away" from the rest of the keyboard. What would you do? It didn't seem to be addressed by your article, though granted, I only skimmed. Thank you very, very much, Sylvia. Well, what do you know! I've managed to work it out! Turns out I had been using the Spanish ISO keyboard which somehow got deleted from the input source options. As soon as I started displaying my keyboard in Spanish again, all the keys regained their original function.
Good news! Best :. Hi, Do you think you could help me revert to the original key assignment on my MacBook Air. Suddenly, symbols I used to be able to type using the shift key have changed. For example, I used to type inverted commas which are depicted above the number 2 by holding down shift and 2. Now when I do that, I get the symbol which is depicted beside the 2. All the other punctuation marks and symbols have also been changed and I have no way of accessing the most basic symbols such as question mark, inverted comma, forward slash etc.
Many thanks. I would be very grateful if you could point me in the right direction. Thanks, Genevieve.
