  • Re-hiding hidden files on OSX

    Posted on February 20th, 2009 ashinn No comments

    This I actually found the other day, but I better post it before I forget.

    For whatever reason I somehow triggered all files to be displayed in Finder. Everywhere I went .DS_Store files (and anything else under the Sun) became visible.

    The fix: Open Terminal -> defaults write com.Apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles NO

    Then you need to bounce finder by executing: killall Finder

    Till next time…
