    Have you tried trashing preferences?

    The main thing to check is that you are looking in the Macintosh HD/<Your User Name>/Library/Preferences folder.

    If you are looking in the Macintosh HD/Library/Preferences folder you will not find it.

     

    Other than that, I don't know.

    You have to start in the Finder. Hold down the Option key while using the Go menu. Choose Go to Library from the menu. You can look at the path at the bottom of the Finder window to see if you are in the right Library folder. If not, then navigate to the right library within that finder window.

    I have only done it once in the last three years, so I would say it is rare.
