    Does anyone know how to find/access the Library/App Support folders in the Lion Finder?

    Under the Finder window, go to Go then Go to folder and type in the path you need. There are also ways through Terminal to have those folders shown all the time too.

    Simply select the go button as above and press the option key - the hidden folder Library is then displayed.

    To unhide permanently, open Terminal:
    Code:
    chflags nohidden ~/Library/
    To revert it you obviously change "nohidden" to "hidden".

    Thanks for the info- not very intuitive.

    Well, it's not intuitive because these are system files/folders and they hid them to prevent non-tech savvy folks from accidentally messing up their systems.
