This probably sound silly to a lot of you but when im in Microsoft Word im trying to get the cursor on the next line, which you do by pressing the enter key but nothing happens, the cursor stays where it is. im having the same problem in writing this post. I got an assignment to hand in for thursday. Any Suggestions? Thanks in Advance

Is OVR present in the status bar (bottom of window). If so double click it.

Enter key not working? Try the Return key instead.

Check keyboard settings in Control Board are set to British English

I have tried the the return key and the enter key. the language is on english UK. Ive typed in a URL on my browser and the return and enter key both work. What else could be the problem?
