To switch on full view, in the Terminal type:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

killall Finder

You can toggle by switching TRUE to FALSE

Well, if you're looking for a quick and easy way to change settings you can't change in the System Prefences get OnyX:

TinkerTool is also a good one, but OnyX has more options... :blink:
