How can I show hidden files?

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

There are at least two different ways to do it.

 

You can use one these simple applications: ShowAllFiles or InVisibles

 

 

The second way is to use the Terminal in two steps.

 

1) Open the Terminal /Applications/Utility/Terminal and type:

 

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool true

 

2) Now type:

 

killall Finder

 

Mission accomplished, the hidden files are now visible.

 

To re-hide the files again:

 

1) Open the Terminal and type:

 

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool false

 

2) Now type:

 

killall Finder
