Showing hidden files on Mac OS

Learning MacOS recently, and couldn’t find some hidden files, i.e. .htaccess

To fix this, easy.

Open Terminal, and paste the following in (both lines together), and press enter. Done.

defaults write AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
killall Finder

To reverse the operation and re-hide them, change TRUE to FALSE.
