  1. ENTER and TAB Key

    Has there been any current resolution on ENTER Key functioning as a TAB moves to the right on keyboard 10 key and USB keypad on Windows 10? Windows 7 works well on desktop or laptop. It's very difficult with complex spreadsheet which deals with massive data entry. It's sad to hear no programmer rectified this matter since 2016 and we are in year 2020. Can someone compare the two programs windows 7 and 10 and find the root cause of the problem. This is a vital function for people who utilizes this key on daily basis. Thank you.
