Mac OS X: Show Hidden Files

By default, as you’d expect from any good operating system, certain system files are hidden from the view of the user. This is often for security or simply to stop the user breaking their system by moving/editing/deleting files that they don’t understand. In some cases, however, you may need to be able to view these files.This guide shows how to view hidden files using Finder in most versions of Mac OS X.
