    Is there a way I can leave hidden files visible in the Finder (or TotalFinder) but not on the desktop?

    I rebuilt then prevented the regeneration of the local .ds_store files using OnyX and TotalFinder, for security / peace of mind. But there are some "home" and "net" hidden folders on the desktop from the Time Capsule (at least I think it is the Time Capsule, right?). Those I don't mind existing but I don't want to have to look at.

    Thanks in advance!:apple:

    There is no need to remove or stop the creation of .DS_Store files. They are not harmful to your Mac in any way. This was already explained to you in another thread and another thread you started.
