Hotkeys don't work and don't see Enter/Return

I am not sure what I am doing wrong but this is the first time I’m using hotkeys and it doesn’t work.

I have a search button that searches for an account name against the account object perfectly fine when clicked on the button.

I wanted to add a “Enter/Return” hotkey to this button and I came across two problems

1.)    Enter/Return is NOT one of the special keys that I see in my list


2.) I tried other combinations and they won’t work when I type text into the text box and try the combination of those keys.

I have tried this with buttons in a button set as well as buttons in a page title component.

Have you gone through our tutorials on hotkeys?

Enter is not one of the hotkeys options because it is already used with the browser. A few before have written javascript snippets to make it so but it has had mixed results. It isn't something that we recommend doing.
