Show hidden files Mac OS X 10.7

I am sure ill forget this command so it is more for me than anything else. Type this in your terminal and then press enter.

defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES


For command to take affect, you must relaunch finder. TO do this, hold ‘alt’ on the keyboard, right click on the Finder icon, and click on Relaunch


To re-hide the hidden files, follow the same process, but type the following in the terminal window:

defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles NO
