You can't. That is, you can't change the keybinding to Enter, not
without editing the source, but you can set Configuration ->
Preferences -> Miscellaneous -> "Enable customizable keyboard
shortcuts", and then highlight View -> "Open in new window" and simply
press the keyboard shortcut you want. Setting it to Enter won't work,
though, but you can set it to just about anything else.

If you really, _really_ want it, then you either have to change the
source yourself, or convince someone to add a configuration option to
enable this.
