Is it possible to disable the "feature" in Mac OS where the Enter key functions to rename files? My cat sits on the keyboard of my IIci, and stuff gets renamed. Not a huge problem, but definitely an annoyance.
Sell or send me your vintage Mac things if you don't want them.

Never thought of doing that. If you could disable it, how else would you rename files? Command-i? I bet your cat can figure that one out too.
