    We are having issues with Skype. Skype advised us to go into ~/Library/Application Support/Skype and make a change to a file.

    We went there, but no Skype folder. Asked them again and were told to go to "Places/Library/Application Support/Skype.... We do not have a "Places"...

    I think that I read somewhere that Lion has hidden these files.... How do we find them..... ?????

    Thank you.

    Here is a screen shot of our Finder...

    Your Library folders are hidden by default in Lion. To get to your /Library or /Users/yourusername/Library (also known as the ~/Library) folders in Lion:
    • Launch Finder and click Go > Go to Folder and type: /Library or ~/Library
    • Hold the Option key while clicking the Go menu item, which reveals your ~/Library folder in the menu.
    • Make it permanently visible by entering the following command in Terminal, then press the Enter key:
      chflags nohidden ~/Library​
