Default Le doy a esta tecla....

Well in context this must mean "I press this key"...but the format is a big surprise to me! Is this a common way to speak of using a keyboard?

Yes, it's much more common the use 'dar' or 'tocar' with regard to keyboars or buttons than the correct verbs, which would be
'presionar' or 'oprimir', at least in colloquial speech.

dar and tocar are ones of those sympathics verbs that are used for cuasi-infinity purposes.

I forgot 'apretar' and 'pulsar', also very extensive. And 'pulsar' I think is the 'official' word for this.

Para escuchar su primer mensaje pulse la tecla 1.
Para borrar todos sus mensajes pulse asterisco.

Typical automatic messages from telephone's company.
