Show Library Folder on Mac OSX 10.9 Mavericks

Since Mac OSX 10.7 Apple hid the Library folder in Finder which contains all the settings and personal app-specific data. This usually works fine with everybody that doesn’t constantly install applications or fidel with the settings in various p-list files. However it has always been a pain to enable / gain access to the folder if you liked having it easily accessible.

Fortunately, in Mac OSX 10.9 Mavericks there is now an easy option to permanently show the Library folder such as it was back in the 10.6 days.

  1. First navigate to your home folder in finder (you can click on your username in the sidebar)
  2. Press ⌘ + J to open up the “View Options” window
  3. Check the box next to: Show Library Folder
