10.3: An Exposť trick Beware the Enter key
Authored by: outofcontrol on Dec 04, '03 10:05:22PM

I pressed F11 I then played around with different keys. I pressed the Enter button on the numeric keypad and a small text box appeared in the middle of my desktop with the text hilighted. I of course instincively typed over the text and hit enter again.

Perhaps it is a Finder bug.

What I was really doing was renaming the last active item in the top finder window that was now hidden off to the side of the screen.

when I pressed F11 again, or pressed the equal sign, my finder window re-appeared with the most recent active item renamed to something utterly useless.

Hope this saves someone!

Definitely a bug. It seems very inconsistent for me (in column view) and I was able to duplicate your issue with the floating textbox for the filename. Seems like a bug to me.
