Hello, this is my first question/response as a new subscriber.

When writing instructions like the above for new users, has anyone _ever_
had a person TYPE the command and then just wait for something to happen
--without pressing an ENTER key?

This has happened to me often with very novice/new users, so I end up
repeatedly stating something like ...type A and then press the Enter key.

what do others think of this? or how have you-all handled the problem?
