Keep it simple: Keys don’t need pseudonyms

I have a pet peeve in the Keep it Simple, Stupid department.

Keyboard shortcut labels containing Enter should say “Enter”, which is what’s written on the key, rather than the antiquated “Return”. Having the label match the key is better both for people who pay keys and people who speak keys.

Thunderbird/File has an example of what not to do — two labels containing “Return”. It’s a small thing, but using any amount of brainpower for this type of translation is unnecessary.

What are your speech pet peeves? Tell me about them – reply here or let me know at info@ this website address.
