Personally, I would say "press," but I think this is a matter of your company's style.
But whatever you do, keys are never HIT (even though the user may feel like it sometimes).

Subject: "Choose" vs. "Press"
I'm new to tech-writing.
The other tech-writer in the company uses
"Choose ENTER" in all the user manuals.
It seems to me that "Press ENTER" should
be used. According to the MS manual of styles -
"Press ENTER" should be used. But I can't seem to convince him.
Is there any style guide that uses "Choose ENTER"?
Are there any other arguments I can use?
