We "click" our buttons (note: NOT click on) and we "press" keys on
the keyboard. For example:

Click the OK button or press Enter to continue.

We use bold type for the "OK" and "Enter."

I'm pushing to get rid of "the . . . button" so it just reads:

Click OK or press Enter to continue.

I think this is just as clear and certainly easier on the user if you
have hundreds "button clicking" sentences in a manual.

Anyway, just my $.02. Hope this helps. . .
