When typing in Word, pressing Enter creates a new paragraph and moves the cursor there. Is there a way to get back to Word 2003 functionality where Enterkey would create a line break?
I know about Shift+Enter, but I would rather just press Enter.

Just modify your style. The default paragraph style in Word 2010 comes with a spacing of
12 pt after the paragraph. If you don't want that, set the spacing after to 0 pt. You can also check the checkbox titled "Don't add space between paragraphs of the same style" to suppress this behavior in your normal paragraphs.
You can find these settings by right-clicking your "Normal" style in the "Home" tab of the ribbon bar -> Modify... -> Format -> Paragraph.
I had the same problem with Office XP. It would add 2 lines with Enter. I can't remember how I changed it back though. It wasn't with Line Spacing. I recently switched to 2007.
Shift + Enter is a pain for hand movement and mouse operation.
I found this (it may be a workaround as opposed to changing the programming for Enter) :
Home » Paragraph » RIBBON » Spacing & Indents
At the bottom: Check the Box (Don't add space) » Default
You can change the paragraphing back to the way it was by default in Word 97-2004 pretty easily.
Hope this wil help someone special
