I have been a mac and windows user... from windows 3.1 to Mac OS 6 was a blast! (it let me drag and drop everything everywhere!) Then back to 95 I felt crippled... then XP came along and was perfect... after 2 years! (of course I skipped Vista! hahaha!)

Now I'm back on OSX (SL) and I want to do something simple, what I used to do in XP but my mac won't let me!!!

When I'm in the open/save window I want to be able to name-change/delete/zip or do anything else with the files in that window... So basically I want to bring up a contextual menu right there and then (like in XP). Is that possible?
QUOTE Thanks

Maybe I don't understand what you want but I use save as and name it what I want and file it where I want under File in the menu bar. i can also right click and save page as.
