How to Go to Next Line in LinkedIn Message

When composing messages on LinkedIn, users often encounter the challenge of going to the next line without inadvertently sending the message. The default setting in LinkedIn messaging is 'Press Enter to Send', which can lead to messages being sent prematurely. However, there are solutions to this issue that allow for better control over message formatting.

To disable the 'Press Enter to Send' feature and gain the ability to insert line breaks:

  1. Open your LinkedIn messages and start composing a message by typing the recipient's name.
  2. Look for three horizontal dots at the bottom right of the message box and click on them.
  3. A pop-up will appear with two options: 'Press Enter to send' and 'Click Send'. Select 'Click Send' to disable the 'Press Enter to Send' functionality. This change allows you to press Enter for a new line without sending the message.
  4. With 'Click Send' enabled, you can now compose your message freely, using Enter to go to the next line. When your message is complete, click the 'Send' button to dispatch it.

Another method for creating line breaks, especially in sections like the Summary where formatting can be more rigid, involves using non-breaking space characters or other whitespace characters. However, this method has mixed results and may not work consistently across different devices or sections of LinkedIn.

For consistent results and to avoid sending fragmented messages, adjusting the messaging settings as described above is the recommended approach. This ensures that you have full control over when your messages are sent and how they are formatted.
