    Hey,

    Basically a while ago I unhid all the files that start with the period character (y'know like .DS_Store etc etc) for some reason, I forget why.

    Now i can't figure out how to hide them all again! :/

    Can someone tell me how to do this?

    Thanks!!

    Open a Terminal window and paste in the following lines :

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles NO
    killall Finder
    press return after each line.
