I have enabled hidden file visibility on OS X El Capitan 10.11, and the files are semitransparent. Is there a way to make them solid like all other files?


You can use chflags to remove hidden flag from files you need:

chflags nohidden YourFile

Use this command with YourFile replaced with your file to change the file flag to no hidden. Files and folders with . prefix will remain hidden.
