How can I make the 'enter' key on the keyboard give a line-feed rather than sending the cursor to the next cell down? [closed]

When typing in a cell in Calc the enter key sends the cursor to the next cell down the column - can I make it give a line-feed - start a new line within the cell as it would in Write?

Replace the shortcut function of "F2" with "Enter".

Go to Tools/Customize, delete the shortcut of "F2" and in the "Enter" shortcut insert the "Cell Edit Mode".
