Using the keyboard, how can I confirm the rename prompt from Finder?

enter image description here

If I press return/enter the “Keep .doc” option is selected. Using the keyboard arrows , , and doesn't seems to help. Neither the tab key.


Press Ctrl+F7 to enable all controls for Tab key and use it to switch the active button in application dialogs.

This can also be set in System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts.

  • Not sure if I have this option turned on but if I press the COMMAND key and the first letter of the button text it selects that button. – Steve Chambers Mar 11 '16 at 18:34

  • In the question pressing COMMAND-U will confirm it – Steve Chambers Mar 13 '16 at 13:10
  • I have not written anything about Command-U and I don't think it is necessary in the method I described, thus I still don't understand, why do you write it as a comment under my answer. – techraf Mar 13 '16 at 13:12
