    How-To: Make Library folder visible under Mac OS X Lion

    Mac OS X Lion has decided that it would be better to have the ~/Library folder hidden (/User/Library) -- I disagree. You need to go in here often to clean up, delete stuff, etc.. especially if your a power user.

    So, how do we unhide it? Easy, like this:

    Code:
    chflags nohidden ~/Library/
    Alternative, if you are unable to type the ~ (Tilde) key, try this:

    Code:
    chflags nohidden /Users/Username/Library
    Replace Username with your Username, you can find this in a terminal by typing: "whoami" (without the quotes of course)
