Mac OS X lets you navigate folders with the arrows, but I can't seem to find a way to open the highlighted file. Windows just works with Enter / Return. I can only seem to preview it with the spacebar...

I feel... stupid! :)

Cmd + (Down Arrow) work too.

Use Cmd+O.

You can also use Space or Cmd+Y to preview the file using Quick Look.

Cmd+O is open. Pressing enter helps renaming the file.
