Under my username in Finder, my Library folder disappeared completely and entirely. I have no idea where it went. Can anyone help?

    There's  a Termnal command to fix that:

     

    chflags nohidden ~/Library

    Thanks! That did it.

     

    Do you know why my folder disappeared in the first place? And, just in case this were to happen in the future with the same or a different folder, can that command be utilized by replacing ~/Library with the correct folder name?

    A change in the default configuation of Lion from earlier versions.  There are a bunch of those!

    It didn't disappear. For whatever reason Apple decided to hide it. You could have still gotten to it by holding down the option key while selecting the Go menu in Finder.
