I am using my Mac as a Standard user. Running latest OSX 10.10.3
I have used the following command from terminal:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowALLFiles YES
But I still can't see my hidden files.
I've checked my ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist file and the correct entry is already there:
<dict> <key>AppleShowALLFiles</key> <string>YES</string>
If I login as Administrator, this command works fine. If I login as a different Standard user, this command works fine. It is something about this specific Standard user account that is preventing the command from working, but there is no way I am creating a new account just to fix this small issue. Anyone have any idea why this isn't working as it should?
