Article ID: 43603588

Symptom

Facts

MC9090

Root Cause

By default the Enter key is assigned as a special function key.

Resolution

There is a registry key that will change the Enter key into a line feed.

1.       To change the definition of the Enter key to generate a linefeed character, create a registry file with the following entry.
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\KEYBD]
"SpecialEnterTabKey" = dword:0

 
2.       Copy the file to the \Platform folder on the MC9090.
 
3.       Tap on .reg file to merge the changes.
 
4.       Warm boot the MC9090.
 
Note: The default value of this key is 1, which sends an extra character before and after the return key, causing applications to exit.
