Is there a way to use the Enter key instead of TAB to move between textboxes and cobobox in LightSwitch?

There is no easy way to do this in LightSwitch and it would violate Windows standards to do so.
It is one of those things that customers who had the comfort in one very old Win32 app that tends to creep up in every usability feedback session. I also always try to argue that it is against every single design principle, but ... Have a look at the most common 3rd party extension packs for Winforms. All the packs have a Enter-As-Tab component :)
However, I agree that this is not possible easily as you would have to write client-specific code which is against LS's principle. As soon as you have a certain deployment in mind (web or desktop) you still should not include things in your presentation-code-logic that only works on one deployment model. I doubt it is even possible.
So, I emphasize what Simon said: No, not possible. Refer your customers to ergonomic user interface design and platform regulations :)
