I can't find it anymore. I need it to transfer some stuff to my external HD, but can't find it. Does anybody know where I can find it???:confused:

Shift-Command-C (or Go > Computer), choose your Hard Drive and there you have it :)

As has been pointed out several times, bring up a Finder window, then press the following key combination:

Shift-Cmd-G

and in the pane, enter:

~/Library

or

/Library

depending on whether you need the library folder in your account or the system itself.

Show User ~/Library in OS X Lion


Launch Terminal from Spotlight or Launchpad -> Utilities, and enter the following command to show or hide the directory:

chflags nohidden ~/Library/

The users Library folder will immediately become visible again. Reverting this back to the standard Lion setting is simple too:

Hide User ~/Library in OS X Lion (default setting)
This returns to the default setting of hiding the user Library directory:

chflags hidden ~/Library

Changes take effect immediately again, and Library becomes invisible to the user.

also, Option key while clicking on the Go menu, offers you the user Library...
