Here is an interesting tip I found online when I am trying to find files in my user Library folder.

By default, Mac OS X 10.7 hides the user’s Library folder. There are a few ways to get around this:

  • While in the Finder, click on the “Go” menu and hold down ?¬†Option, then select Library.
  • To permanently reveal the ~/Library folder, open up Terminal and run this command:
chflags nohidden ~/Library

Note: Anytime there is an OS X update (e.g. from version 10.7.3 to 10.7.4) you will have to run this command again as the folder will be hidden again.
