This app is not needed on Snow Leopard! Very simple native way to change keyboard commands! Go to System Preferences -> Select"Keyboard" (under hardware, second row) -> click over to Keyboard Shortcuts -> Select On the left 'pane' "Application Shortcuts" (Last Item in List) -> Press the '+' under the second 'pane' -> Now three options.... first one Pick which app you wish to change... in this case Finder so select from the list of apps 'Finder' -> Now it asks what the the "Menu Title" is, well it's "Open" the key command by default assigned to [Command + O] -> We don't want it to be for [Command + O] we want it to be "enter/Return" under where we typed "Open" we just select that 3rd and last field and press the "enter/Return" key or whatever you wish! I like (Command + Return) -> sit back and use whatever key or key combination you entered! Everyone can customize the hotkey's on EVERY app natively! No third party app necessary!

This is something that used to be only capable with apps like Unsanity's Menu Master program. Now no more need for an "unstable" plugin which had to be used with a non-apple 'hack' program named APE, now out for SL if you like unsanity's apps.

Unless I read the description wrong for this app, why make an SL version... it's not needed.

Just another app eating up system resources!

Hooray! Thanks for this software. There used to be a freeware extension in 7 that would let me do this on my Powerbook...how I've missed it.
The readme file was particularly clear.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Although cmd+o or cmd+[down-button] isn't THAT hard, it's still better to be able to open a file/folder by pressing enter, the way it SHOULD be.
Thanks again!

why would you want to initiate a potentially VERY expensive operation like opening a file by a bare keypress?

this is one of the worst ui blunders of windoze, and it's all dos' fault.

The way it "SHOULD" be? I think that's relative. If you started out on Macs like you SHOULD have, then you would be trying to use cmd-down or cmd-up in windoze ;)

Seems not working good in Snow Leopard, any update? Can't live without PresButan.
