I have a MacBook Air (11-inch, Late 2010) (it’s old I know) and I have installed rEFInd on an USB. The thing is, my return key does not work, so rEFInd is basically useless. Is there any way rEFInd can be configured to be used without the return key.

Python says -1/80 is neither positive nor negative nor zero
