It's usually not a good idea to disable standard functions, such as the
action of the enter key. Your users may be accustomed to using it for
navigation in other applications and will be upset that it doesn't work the
same way in yours. However, if you really have a need to do it, go to Tools
> Options > Keyboard > Move After Enter section and set it to Don't Move.
