Hidden Files

Show Hidden Files in OS X 10.9 Mavericks

In OS X 10.9 Apple have changed things around again when it comes to showing hidden files. The easiest way I have come across is via the Terminal.

Simply open the Terminal app from the Utilities folder inside Applications, or by searching for "Terminal" using Spotlight in your menu bar.

Once open, enter the following two commands:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -boolean true
killall Finder
