    is it possible to make it so that you can press enter to open a folder/ document? (Right now it renames it)

    you can do this through onyX. onyX has a lot of little tweaks for leopard.

    but antother tip is making a screensaver your wallpaper using wallsaver. downloaded from the apple downloads site. you can also use quartz compositions as wallpaper using quartz desktop.

    ok... in case anyone is interested, I just found an awesome app that lets you open files/ folders/ apps with the return/ enter key (like in windows)... It is called ReturnOpen...

    This is a MUST HAVE for all macs!!!

    Good Luck:apple:

    No i don't see why... You can open an app by clicking command+o. Same thing.

    YOU ARE WINDOWS BRAINWASHED!

    I've been using Macs at home since 1985. I've spent a good portion of my professional career on Macs. In January the company switched us over from OS 9 to PCs running XP. And in just a few months, I have to think twice before I rename a file on either machine.

    It would be great if *both* platforms would standardize on this little stuff to make it easier to switch from machine to machine.

    That may have something to do with the fact that you resurrected a thread that's over 3 years old. Lion didn't exist at the time that was posted. Neither did Snow Leopard. :rolleyes:
