As the title said, my Desktop and Documents folder doesn't appear in finder when i'm in the path /users/[username]

But however :

$ ls /users/[username]
Applications    Qt              workspace
Desktop         Movies          
Documents       Music
Downloads       Pictures
Library         Public

How is that possible ?

  • What do you mean "invisible in Finder?" Can you post a screenshot of where it doesn't show up? – Allan Jan 30 '18 at 13:51
  • I mean he is not visible at all, like if he wasn't here. – Pixeuh Jan 30 '18 at 16:06

    Did you activate Documents & Desktop in iCloud? – l1ghthouse Jan 30 '18 at 23:29

    Can you press cmd + shift + . and try running defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE; killall Finder? – JMY1000 Jan 31 '18 at 2:27

This is normal behavior if you have activated Desktop & Documents Folders syncing in iCloud (as @pjc90 has mentioned in the comments).

  • Desktop & Documents Folders are not even in this iCloud window – Pixeuh Feb 9 '18 at 15:04
  • @Pixeuh Desktop & Documents are the first item on the list. – Scot Feb 9 '18 at 17:34
