In computers the command lines of all sorts use a space as the character used to separate arguments. See command line in the wiki. Thus it is a reserved character. However, like other special characters there are ways to make it not special. In windows command shells or Unix you need to place the whole file name in quotes to remove the special meaning. Even though you are using a click to select a name the underlying code must turn that into a string of characters and this is where the special processing is required. A name to a computer is a word and two words are two names. Even people sometimes have problems in parsing information where two names are to be treated as one name (word).
