I have a Zagg Keyboard. For a while, it worked fine when I used Messenger. I think the problem came along when I updated the software. The issue is before the update the Enter key moved the cursor down a line. Now the Enter key sends the message. I can't stand this and want it back like it was before. Any ideas???

This behaviour is up to the app/website to decide, so unfortunately you cannot change it back yourself. However, pressing Ctrl+Enter is a common shortcut on Mac and iOS to insert a linebreak when Enter normally submits.

  • Shift+Enter works for me too

  • Perhaps report this as a bug in Messenger to Facebook.

Keep in mind I am using iOS 15.0.2 & using Messages for Android on Chrome. Use Shift+Ctrl+Enter and it will work.
