    I have been wondering for quite some time now where the "User/Library/App Support" folder has gone to with OS X Lion? There is a App Support file within "Macintosh HD" but it does not have support for all of my applications...

    I have another mac which is running Snow Leopard and has this directory with ALL of my applications support folders. I am trying to figure out how to get to the support folder of an application called "Steam" which should be located in "User/Library/App Support"

    Additional Info: This is a new macbook that was pre-loaded with OS X Lion... Not sure if this helps but you never know :)

    Thanks in advance,

    It's still there, just hidden.

    Click Go in the Finder menu, then press the Alt key - you will then see Library appear in the menu.

    To prevent people from ‘accidently‘ hosing an app.
