Re: OK? space bar, enter, who knows

Technically, Spacebar is the Windows keystroke for activating a form control (button, link, etc.), while Enter activates the default control which often produces the same result. If you happen to be focused on a control which isn’t the default, pressing Enter may yield unexpected results. Things get even more confusing when screen readers use Enter to activate Forms mode. The bottom line: Use the Spacebar to be absolutely sure.

One can generally use either spacebar or enter on any button to activate it
