One of my files is named with a "..." at the start, which seems to be hidden in the finder - I can see from the folder size that the file is in there but can't see it. Is there anyway I can change the file name on a hidden file?
Open the Script Editor or AppleScript Editor in one of the subfolders of Applications and run the following:
tell application "Finder" to quit
if (do shell script "defaults read com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles") is "1" then
do shell script "defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles 0"
do shell script "defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles 1"
tell application "Finder" to run
If you change your mind later, run the script again.
