    Hi,

    I'm probably going to get flamed for being a major noob but here goes..

    I'm try to browse through files in Finger and when I hit "enter/return", it tries to rename the filename.. I'm wondering if there's anything special I need to set to make "enter/return" enter the folder instead of trying to rename it?

    Thanks.

    command (apple key) + down arrow will do the trick.

    or just double-click it.

    Doesn't work.

    I end up using the mouse and double clicking but when you're using the arrow keys to navigate through files in Finder, I don't like switching to the mousepad and double clicking and go back to using the arrow keys.

    Thanks for the response though.

    Thanks a bunch maczter!

    After finding out the answer, I realize that I've used Windows for far too long to realize things like using arrow keys to navigate that way.

    Thanks again.
