To rename files in the Finder many people still select the file, then click on the file name, then wait a second, then type once the name has been selected. But power users know that the quicker way to do it is to select the file and hit the Return key on your keyboard. This instantly selects the name and you can type immediately. By default, only the name before the file extension is selected, but a quick Command+A selects the whole thing. Or, you can hit the right arrow key to jump to the end of the main file name, or the left to jump to the beginning for quick appending or prepending.
