I have seen Press and Hold, when you want the user to hold the button down,
i.e., "...press and hold the left mouse button to drag an object..."

Dear listmembers,

What is your opinion about "press" vs. "keep" when it comes to buttons on
instruments etc?

To the best of my knowledge, you PRESS A BUTTON if there's a brief contact
between your finger and the button but you KEEP A BUTTON DOWN if the contact
is a bit longer.

However, I seldom see this distinction in operator's manuals nowadays.
