How to Show Hidden Folders and Files on Mac

macOS hides many of the system-related files and folders by default. It’s helpful in usual cases as users don’t want to create unwanted issues by interacting with important system-specific files. But there are situations we need to interact with these hidden files.

Let’s check how to unhide those hidden files and folders on Mac easily.

  1. Navigate to the location using Finder where you want to see the hidden folders or files.
  2. Use the keyboard shortcut – Command + Shift + . (dot)
  3. This will show all hidden files and folders of that specific location.
  4. If you want to hide them again, use the same shortcut Command + Shift + . again.

I hope this short and easy Mac tutorial will be helpful for you. Thank you for coding!
