    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:


    and in the pane, enter:

    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.
