When renaming files in Finder I end the renaming with "Enter" which irritatingly opens the file. Websearch tells me that the "Enter"-key should start (and end) renaming while Cmd+O opens a file.

How do I restore that behaviour or by which keycommand has it been replaced? Did I change this myself (inadvertently, like, a while ago), or has Apple changed it??

EDIT: After getting the answer that this behaviour has NOT changed, I looked into what could have changed it again and found that I activated this behaviour in Karabiner-Elements. Probably should have tried to get used to the system before customising it.

I just realised that I activated this behaviour in Karabiner-Elements myself.
