I discovered the well-known shortcut ⌘ CMD + ⇧ SHIFT + . to quickly show and hide hidden files in finder. Unfortunately, this shortcut doesn't work on non-US keyboards.

How can I show/hide files using a shortcut with AZERTY keyboard?


  • I know I can update com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles and kill the finder, but I am looking for a shortcut based solution.
  • I currently work with macOS Mojave 10.14.6
