Pressing <Enter> calls the default action to the selected file/dir as defined 
by users' ~/.local/share/applications settings (possibly set up via Gnome). 


You can get the internal viewer with F3 (should be total-commander and 
midnight commander compliant):


There was a related disc just a few days before on the devel list, let me just 
quote Pjotr here:

        F1      Help
        F2      Refresh files in the active file list
        F3      View files
        F4      Edit files
        F5      Copy files
        F6      Rename or move files
        F7      Create directory
        F8      Delete files
        F9      Search
        F10     Quit

Total Commander provides the same F1..F8 operations - with the exception
of F2, which is used for reread the current file list. 


There is a kind of standard - see
http://www.softpanorama.org/OFM/Paradigm/index.shtml (ch. 8 and ch. 9)

According to the above document:

        F1      should not only invoke hypertext help, it should invoke help
        on any item of the toolbar and any item of tool bar menus. The
        help should be context sensitive: if some dialog is opened the
        help should be about this particular dialog, not the general
        help tree. 
        F2      user menu or equivalent (start menu). Should provide the
        possibility to run user shell scripts with substitution of macro
        variables from the panels. Each item of the menu should be
        activated by its own letter (hotkey). Format of the macro
        variable is not defined in this standard but following Midnight
        Commander conventions is recommended.  
        F3      should invoke built-in viewer or (in GOFM only) default
        F4      should invoke built-in editor or (in GOFM only) default
        F5      should copy/move subtrees if applied to directories
        F6      should be able to move subtrees
        F7      should create directories
        F8      should delete files or directory subtree if applied to the
        directory with non-empty subdirectories
