Show hidden files with a macOS keyboard shortcut

twitter logo github logo Originally published at on ・1 min read  

A very very quick one today.

Sometimes when developing on macOS I want to view hidden files in Finder but most of the time it is just extra noise so I like them hidden.

There is a keyboard shortcut to toggle the visibility of these files.

cmd + Shift + .


(thanks to osx daily for the tip and image.)

This keyboard shortcut will show hidden files or hide them if shown…

Success 🎉
