Show Hidden Files in Finder

To show hidden files in Finder:

1. Open the “Terminal” application. Applications>Utilities>Terminal
2. On the first line, write “defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE“.
3. Press Enter.
4. On the next line, write “killall Finder“.
5. Press Enter.

At this point, the hidden files will appear when browsing in Finder. To hide these files again, perform the same steps as above but instead of writing TRUE, write FALSE.
