I'm building a website and people just don't get the default button. They never hit enter, they use their mouse and click.

It's frustrating since I made the button light blue with a surrounding lightblue glow around it.

How do you perceive it when a button is the "enter fires this" button ?

Is there another way I don't know about?

@MichaelHampton thanks - I was browsing google but couldnt find something apropriate, so I ended here. Can you move the question over there? – Toskan Dec 7 '12 at 12:45

They never hit enter

Seems like a contradiction? If they never hit enter, why bother hi-lighting it as enter fires this button? With all that hi-lighting and glow around your button I bet they are clicking it like mad.

What else do you want them to do?

Well no it's not a contradiction. I want them to buy a pony for the backyard. – Toskan Dec 7 '12 at 12:42

Make your button look like the enter key:
