OS X Lion : the hidden Library
If you’re like me and recently installed OS X Lion, you may have noticed that the Library folder is no longer shown in the Finder. It is actually just hidden. Here a three easy tricks to get it back or to access it.
Completely unhide the Library
We do this thanks to the Terminal. Launch it and…
- Run this command to reveal the Library :
chflags nohidden ~/Library/
- If you want to hide the Library again :
chflags hidden ~/Library/
Access with a keystroke
In any Finder window (on the Desktop as well), you just have to hit [Cmd+Shift+G] and type
Access via the Finder menu
Maybe you haven’t noticed it yet but the Finder menu has some extra and hidden entries. Open a Finder window, click on the « Go » menu and press the [Alt] key to reveal the Library.
