I'm having a problem with the enter key on my mac. All of a sudden it's not working and to press enter now I later found out that I can press the button to the right of the command button (on the right) to press enter.

Is there a reason why this is happening or a way to fix this?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Open System Preferences->Speech and make sure the Enter key didn't get bound to your microphone key. If it did, choose some other key combination for mic and it should release the Enter key.

Just tried that, enter key wasn't bound to anything so it can't be that. Any other suggestions?

Would it be worth resetting my SMC?

Just tried resetting the SMC as well and that didn't work, any other suggestions?

note: there is nothing blocking the enter key from working, i've took the key off and everything looks fine.
