space bar

<hardware> (Or "space key") The extra-wide key at the near edge of every keyboard that is used to enter a space character.

In some Graphical User Interfaces, the space bar can be used to select the current item where the context does not allow text entry, e.g. when the input focus is on a push button or tick box.
