What are some keycodes ?
Here's some code which quits a program when the escape key is pressed:
key keycode [#'^(ESC)'] [quit]
I want to do the same thing, but when the Enter key is pressed. I've tried #'^(ENT)', #'^(ENTER)', and #'^(RETURN)', but they don't work.
Is there a way to find out all the possible keycodes or make my own ?

The magic code for ENTER is ^M
view layout [
key keycode [#"^M"] [print "enter pressed"]
You can see what codes are generated with this:
view/new layout [
the-box: box "A Box" forest feel [
engage: func [face action event] [
print [action mold event/key]

The keycode for backspace is ^H is is the same as control h. Would it be possible to make a keycode #"^(BACK)" just like the keycode for escape, #"^(ESC)" ? Same with changing enter to #"^(ENTER) or something. That way ^M and ^H can be used when the user wants to use control m and control h.
