Apple’s keyboard shortcut to show hidden files


Time was this would take a trip to the Terminal, but if you’re running Sierra or above there’s a handy new keyboard shortcut.

Just activate the Finder and hold down shift-command-period. Repeat to toggle invisible files off again.

This works not only in save and open dialog sheets, but in regular Finder windows also.

Magic! đŸ™‚
