However, as someone who has worked with Windows for years even the simple interactions in OSX are not familiar to me. There are two ways I’ve found to rename files. Firstly, similar to how you might in Windows, you can click over the name of the file in a finder to make the name editable. However, another useful mechanism is to select the file and then press <Enter>. In Windows this would open the file in the default application, however in OSX it functions as a rename metaphor.
