View Hidden Files in Finder
Many file navigators, including Finder, can browse hidden folders in addition to the visible ones. It’s a quick way to show hidden files. All it takes is usually a menu option. Alternatively, Mac show hidden files in Finder with a handy shortcut. The same key combination also lets you hide them again, if you don’t want to accidentally move or delete these directories later.
Hidden directories and files can be told apart from others by their faded, semi-transparent icons and names. Even when you know how to show hidden files Mac users should be careful with system folders - they can cause a lot of harm to your system if they are removed or altered in any way.
Note that if you use this method to show hidden files on Mac, it’s limited to a single Finder window. All the other currently open windows will not have the setting enabled, and it will be reset as soon as the affected window is closed.
