    Pressing command O works, but its really slow for people like me who like to use the keyboard instead of trackpad/mouse to navigate since everytime i open a file or folder i have to press command O. I dont rename nearly as much as i open, so is there any way to make "Enter/Return" to open and "Command O" to rename?

    Ah, switcher eh?

    Sorry, that's a non-user editable feature of OS X.

    Before you grumble about OS X being different, please remember this has been the case in the Mac OS since the Lisa in 1983, a full two years before Windows even appeared.
