Answer

Create a registry file to make the change persist after a cold boot.
 
NOTE:  A cold reboot will erase all files, except the application and platform folder.  Save your files before cold booting.
  1. Open Notepad on the PC.
  2. Type the following registry entry:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Symbol\ScanWedge]

"AutoEnter"=dword:00000000

"AutoPIE"=dword:00000000

"AutoTab"=dword:00000000

"Binary"=dword:00000000

"Data"=dword:00000001

"Escape"=dword:00000001

"Prefix"="”

"Suffix"="\xYY”
  1. Make sure the value of Escape is set to dword:00000001, which means “Allow escapes in prefix/suffix”.
  2. Note in the \xYY in the example above, the YY is the hex value you want to send. For example, \x0D is to send a return value (Enter Key).
  3. Save the file as suffix_return.reg
  4. Place the file on your Terminal in the \Application Folder using ActiveSync.
