any key

Newbies take heed: If a tech support person or a computer manual directs you to "hit any key," that means you can push any of the keys on your keyboard (there is no one specific key labeled "any"). We've heard tales of computer companies that are seriously considering changing the command "Press Any Key" to "Press Return Key" or "Press Enter Key" because of the flood of new user calls asking where the "any key" is.
