Mac – show hidden files

Posted by on Apr 19, 2014 in Tech / Equipment, Web | 0 comments

How to show hidden files on Mac:

This is a reminder for me but you may also find it useful.

Terminal Command:

Mavericks 10.9

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

10.6 – 10.8:

defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

 

After either of those you may need to restart your Mac, or at the very least type:

killall Finder 

If you don’t feel comfortable using Terminal, try a Google search for software such as:
