Thats pretty straight forward.

Drag on, from the control toolbox, a context menu strip onto your GroupBox, it'll look like you added a menu to your form, don't worry. Select your group box control and in the ContextMenuStrip property select the name of the context menu you just added

Then..
 
select the context menu item, it'll appear underneath your form in the component tray, this will display it and again it will look like you added a menu to your form. If you clikc on the white box in the context menu an arrow will appear, it's a combo box, click on this and you can add a text box. You won't be able to have a label unforutnately, you'll have to use the text property of the text box to convey any meaning. Next select the textbox and click on the lightning bolt icon on the properties tab to display the events, handle the KeyPress event by double clicking in the empty space next to its name and use code similar to below to handle your event:


 private void toolStripTextBox1_KeyPress(object sender, KeyPressEventArgs e)
        {
            switch ((Keys)e.KeyChar)
            {
                case Keys.Enter:
                    {
                        MessageBox.Show("Enter Pressed");
                        break;
                    }
                default:
                    {
                        return;
                    }
            }
        }
