To open a link in an org-mode file one normally types C-c C-o. I find this rather cumbersome. I would like to rebind the command org-open-at-point to RET but only when the cursor rests on the link.

I am not using evil.


You just need to set

(setq org-return-follows-link t)

in your init file (or use the Customize interface to do the same).

Check also org-tab-follows-link and org-mouse-1-follows-link.

EDIT: Actually, do not change org-tab-follows-link - just read its doc string with C-h v org-tab-follows-link and heed its pronouncements :-)
