If you Select two columns, and keep pressing tab key, it starts the selection of the cell from A1, Then moves to B1 & then to A2, Then to B2 and so on.

I need to be able to use Enter key to perform this function. Is there a way to temporarily change the Tab key Function to Enter Key.

If there is no option in Google sheets - Is there an Add-on that will help me with this. I am not that good with Script Editor.

There is no feature in Google Sheets nor in Google Apps Script to do this. If you absolutely need to make the Enter key send a Tab key event, you will have to install some utility that lets you remap keys per application.
