    i dont usually use the enter button to open an application or file but the last time i used it, instead of opening the file what happen is, it go to rename the file.

    even i press twice or more still the rename happened.
    is it in the setting? but i didnt touch anything in preference to change it.
    play help me or else i send this MBP to the store for check up.

    thank you, pls help me....

    If you're in the finder, pressing enter/return has ALWAYS brought up the rename function.

    Unless you have been using Pathfinder.

    Unless you are using a Finder replacement (like Pathfinder) pressing enter/return will ALWAYS (and has been this way for 20 years) will bring up the option to change the filename.

    If you're using Windows, then pressing enter/return will open the file.
