    Hi,

    I used to open folders using keyboard simply by pressing 'enter'
    but in mac, it just renames the file

    what is the keyboard key to open files

    thanks

    or use column view (command-3 or the third view in the toolbar) and just arrow.

    Don't forget you can preview the file by hitting the space bar :)

     + Down arrow also opens files/apps/folders on my MBP.

    I have an old doc somewhere that has all the OSX shortcuts. You might be able to google for it. If I remember tonight, I will attach it.
