How do I toggle hidden files on/off?

In previous versions of OSX this was ⌘ Command⇧ Shift.

It's not working anymore for me on macOS Big Sur.


⌘ Command⇧ Shift. still works. Check Keyboard Shortcuts to see if you have a shortcut overriding the toggle hidden files action

To permanently show hidden files, open terminal and type:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles true; killall Finder
