    I have a problem with finder...

    I changed it to set all hidden files to true, but now I can't un do this. I type the command to disable it, and kill finder, yet all of the hidden files are still there. Even after reboot. This happens on my user and the root user too..

    How do I fix this? A bit of googling just lead to people asking how to do the command and general idiocy.

    To show hidden files in Finder, copy and paste the following command into a Terminal window, then press enter:
    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE && killall Finder​

    Weird, I was doing it on separate lines (as it always worked for me)

    guess I will have to change my macro's to this command


    Thanks mate
