    @ahmed salah , Welcome to Microsoft Q&A, based on my test, I reproduced your problem. It seems that datagirdview will move cursor to the same column in the next row when we use the datagirdview keydown event.

    I recommend that you use ProcessCmdKey method to do it and here is a code example you could refer to.

     protected override bool ProcessCmdKey(ref Message msg, Keys keyData)  
                if (keyData == Keys.Enter)  
                    if (dataGridView1.CurrentRow != null)  
                        dataGridView1.CurrentCell =  
                            .Rows[Math.Min(dataGridView1.CurrentRow.Index + 1, dataGridView1.Rows.Count - 1)]  
                return base.ProcessCmdKey(ref msg, keyData);  

    Note: Please delete the keydown event to avoid the conflict when we use the above method.

    Tested result:

    Best Regards,
