Would be good if it replaced the shortcut to rename files - with apple R or something

From the application's description:

Your process uses two keys.

Here's the steps to uninstall. (I hope that next version comes with uninstaller)
Please try at your own risk.

1. If Developer Tools installed
a.Double-click /Users//Library/Preferences/com.apple.Finder.plist" to open with Property List Editor.app .
b. select NSUserKeyEquivalents line and click "Delete" button.
c. Command-S to save changes.
d. Reopen Finder.app(Control-Option-click the Finder icon in the Dock)

2. If Developer Tools not installed
a. Launch /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app .
b. Type following command.
defaults delete com.apple.Finder NSUserKeyEquivalents
c. Reopen Finder.app(same as above)

i did that then it said:
There is no (NSUserKeyEquivalents) default for the (com.apple.Finder) domain.
Defaults have not been changed.

If there's no NSUserKeyEquivalents default in com.apple.Finder domain, uninstallation is successfully done. Just reopen the Finder.app.

I tried that steps on OS X Tiger(10.4.11) and successfully uninstalled.

If it doesn't help you, you should contact the auther of this utility.

Simply download and mount the disk image then double-click the ReturnOpen icon. In less than one minute you'll be using your 'Return' key to open files and folders! You don't even have to restart! Note: Finder will be relaunched at the end of the install, which will cause any windows that you have open to be closed.
