I'll add my voice to the others singing the praises of Apple's customer service. Last year, I dropped my computer right before all of my final papers were due. Distraught, I went to the store, knowing my warranty didn't cover that kind of damage - and they performed what should have been an $800 repair for free. Getting things repaired and replaced is such a simple, hassle-free process with them, and in my 8 years of Mac ownership, I've only ever once had a technical problem - some kind of worn wire - that was easily rectified. I'm definitely one of those die-hard converts

Ugh, ok… I ended up with a Macbook Pro, and this is going to sound so stupid, but… how do I change the name of a file (specifically a picture file)? I go to File > Open File, but I can't change anything about any of the pictures there.

Where do I go and what do I do?!

While I love my Mac some days, there are other days that I hate it. I find it so frustrating that I can't figure out how to do some of the easiest and most basic things on it

Select the file you want to rename (it should be highlighted in some way- probably in blue). Click on it once more. A text box should appear where the current file name is. Enter your new file name, and you're done. Do not open the file first- if the file is open, you won't be able to rename it.

^^I just bought a Macbook Pro - OSX 10.9.4 and I am able to rename open files. If the file is open, locate the name of the file (at the top of the window) and double click the name. A dialog box will appear that will allow you to change the file name.

When I open a picture, it opens in a separate browser window as a .jpg. There isn't anywhere to rename it...

You can rename it from that window. Just click on the name at the top of the box (there may be an arrow on the right hand side). It will open up and you can change from there.

I got my Macbook Pro a little over a year ago. The learning curve was steep (ha- have you figured out spellcheck? That took me forever!!) but I love it now. Plus you can google any of your questions and the help sites are numerous.

Still confused…

When I open a picture, it takes me to my internet browser and displays the picture in the same way it would if I right-clicked on a pic on Facebook and selected 'Open Image in New Tab'; no name is displayed and there aren't any arrows that I can see.

And the only reason I came here to ask this was because I searched high and low through Google, and I couldn't find anything about how to change the name of a single picture file. Where are all of these help sites?

I'm so frustrated… grrrrr.

You shouldn't be opening the picture at all. Find the picture in the Finder- follow the folder paths until you get to it (the two tone blue icon with the smilie face). Then try the steps I gave you above.

Ahhh, thanks! I missed your comment above! I've figured it out now.

Aaaaaand I just learned what the Finder is. Yes, I had to use Google to figure out where to find it, and when it said in the 'Dock', I had to figure out what the Dock was, and then I used Google Images and entered 'Finder icon' to know what the heck it was.

I hate technology. lol

In addition to what Smile_Awhile said, you can also right-click on it (or Command+Click) and select "Get Info" from the menu and there's a place to change the file name there.

unarose, I do the right-click on my pictures and it works easily. Took me a while to figure it out when I switched over from Windows. After 5 years, my MacBook Pro seems to still be trudging along fine.
