First question:

    Private Sub txtInput_KeyPress(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) Handles txtInput.KeyPress
        If e.KeyChar = ControlChars.Cr Then ' if enter was pressed
            e.Handled = True ' get rid of annoying beep
            Button1_Click(Nothing, Nothing) ' run Button1_Click code
        End If
    End Sub

Second question:

    Select your TabControl.
    In the TabPages property, click on the three dots "..."
    Select the TabPage you want to modify.
    Find the Text property on the right side of the dialog.
    Edit it, adding your underscore where you want it.
    Press OK.

Set the KeyPreview Property of the form to True.  The code will look pretty much the same:

    Private Sub Form1_KeyPress(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) Handles MyBase.KeyPress
        If e.KeyChar = ControlChars.Cr Then ' if enter was pressed
            e.Handled = True ' get rid of annoying beep
            Button1_Click(Nothing, Nothing) ' run Button1_Click code
        End If
    End Sub

I see what you are saying about the accellerator keys now.  I don't think you can do that with the TabControl but I'm still looking...

Form.AcceptButton = myButton

There is no accelarator key for this control.
