    hey sorry if i am posting this in the wrong section. Noob to the mac world. Recently bought a mac with el capitan. I transferred all my windows files to the computer. My only problem is I do not know how to view my hidden files i transferred.

    Does anybody know how I can access these files?

    any help would be appreciated, thanks.
