I want to go into the core services folder but the Library folder is no longer there
You could search MacRumors
It is invisible so novice users don't muck with it.
Strange thing. It used to be available under Snow Leopard.
Open terminal, and enter the following command:
defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES
And press Enter.
Now, you should be able to see all the hidden folders.
Or you could just press option when clicking Go in Finder.
No need to enable seeing ALL hidden folders.
If you want to unhide the ~/Library folder just:
1) Open Terminal
2) Type: chflags nohidden ~/Library
Your Library folder will now be shown all the time.
That would be too easy. How would the person know which of the about 7 results to pick?
thanks Just applied that.
in Macintosh HD...
Other folders are you can find there:
I get that Apple is thinking of novice users here, but I think this decision is too drastic. There are too many reasons normal people need to use it. Steam puts its entire folder here, as does Crossover, and I imagine many other apps as well. A warning dialog (with an option to disable) would've been a better choice.
Yay Thank you.
