Show hidden files in Finder

This post will show you how to show hidden files in finder (like .htaccess).

There isn’t an easy ‘on/off’ switch for it, instead, you have to enable it from the command-line…

Open terminal, type in:

defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES && killall Finder

The setting will be written, and Finder will restart, and you will see your hidden files.

To hide the files again, type:

defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles NO && killall Finder
