How to Press Enter in ChatGPT Without Submitting

ChatGPT’s interface is very easy to understand. Just type your command and press Enter to generate a response.

However, at times when you just don’t want to submit the text, but rather add more lines, you can press Shift + Enter.

Doing so will insert line breaks to your text and you can start a new line from there.

Another way is to use the ChatGPT Ctrl + Enter sender Chrome extension. Once installed, you can press the Enter key to shift to a new line. But to submit the input, you’ll need to press Ctrl + Enter

Note: This extension only works on a big screen wider than 768 pixels and not on a small screen.

If you press Enter after writing a prompt on ChatGPT but it does not submit, you won’t receive a response and that can be annoying.

2. Set the Time range and check the box next to Cookies and site data and Cached images and files.

3. Click on Clear data.
