Mac OS X – Show Hidden Files in Finder
Posted September 19, 2007on:
One annoying thing about my MacBook pro and OS X is not easily been able to show hidden files.
Showing hidden files
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
Hide the files again
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
Thanks to Matt for pointing out an error in my screen shots
