Frankly, I understand. Far too many Mac users in the past have ventured beyond their Home directory and caused mischief either by removing critical files or moving files which shouldn’t be. But what if you want to see the files Apple has hidden?
Can You See Me Now?
If all you want is to find all the invisible files on your Mac and make them visible, even if all you want to do is know where they are and don’t plan to muck around with them, then you’ll like using Funter on your Mac.
There are many ways to make Mac invisible files turn visible. Use the Terminal commands. Grab one of a dozen utilities which unlock visibility on files. Or, use Funter.
The app lives in the Mac’s Menubar and gives you one-click access to Show Hidden Files.
That’s it. Funter lets you view files which Apple makes invisible, and boy are there lots of them (and, hidden for good reason). If you know what you’re doing, or you think you do, there might be cause to view hidden, invisible files, and that’s what Funter does with a click.
Click to Show Hidden Files, click to Hide files again. You won’t need Terminal and Funter is a good Mac citizen and doesn’t hog battery or drain precious Mac resources. Just so you don’t get all bent out of shape, Funter will switch visibility on, the restart your Mac’s Finder, but that’s so Finder can find what was once invisible.
