    Unhide folder? Possible?
    What is the command key i can use to unhide certain folder in Mac OS x. I know the command to unhide all system folders, but I want to unhide a specific folder permanently. Any suggestions? thank you!

    Closer than you think.

    You'd need to use the terminal to remove the invisible attribute. Last I knew the developer tools came with the SetFile command. I believe this is still what is used.

    Install developer tools, then open terminal and type man SetFile
